making friends

making a friend isn't always as easy as "if you want to make a friend you have to BE a friend."  although it is wise advice.

we went to the pumpkin patch/corn maze a few weeks ago.  i was riding on the hayride next to aleemay.  she chose a seat next to a girl that looked just her age.  i was happy to see that she started including the girl in conversation almost immediately.  they started pointing out different colored pumpkins when the girl said, "by the way, do you want to be friends?" 
i smiled from head to toe... how cute! 
i reminded aleemay she should introduce herself before we left the ride and never saw them again.

i might try that line next time i meet someone nice and friendly...

Try to remember, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."

So cute. I wish it was that easy as an adult.

lesson #2:
aleemay came home from school on friday and said, "hey mom, remember "emmie" from the pumpkin patch?!"
"she goes to my school!" she finished.

...i guess she WILL see her again!
