Just Being a Friend…

This is a guest post — written by my youngest son for a class assignment.  Kinda nice to see the world from his eyes.
Just Being a Friend
  “I think everybody’s got to do this everyday. But friendship is a complication of kindness and trustworthy-ness. You have to let them know they can trust you. Then its smooth sailing from there. So, now that we have that covered, here’s how my story began.
“It begins with the rising of the sun on a beautiful school morning. Outside, in the brisk morning air, the bell has rung and everyone’s outside like a barrel full of monkeys, it was recess. The minute I went outside I thought an earthquake hit, but it was just the kids stomping around. However, there was one boy who thought he didn’t fit in with all of those howling monkeys. I felt a heavy-ness in my heart saying to go over and cheer him up, and so I did.
“As I made my way over to him, while dodging some random kids, I thought about what I was going to say to him. It was probably something between “You can do it!” and “Just keep going, man!” We started talking about what our hobbies and what we have in common. As we closed our confersation, I thought about my good deed and how it affected him and me. I notested how my heart felt more elivated and free ‘cause of the good deed that I’ve done.
“I hope you have been a good friend just like I have. And hopfully, you have had a fun time being their friend. THE END.”
