FRIENDS & FAMILY FEELS
Notes about family and friends - how we make them, treat them, and keep them
Seems like a lot to do going down the road of seventh grade. Lots to study. Lots to learn, lots to play, lots to learn, lots of friends, lots of plans, lots to learn... We learn so much from our friends. We learn so much from our friends. It's so important that we choose good friends. You have many good friends I know. And you yourself are a good friend to many others - it works both ways. When I was growing up I was lucky to have so many good friends among my own brothers and sisters. Listen to your friends OK. Be a good friend. Grow and learn to love!
The trees on Rugby silohette starkly against the brightening morning sky as Sunny and I round the corner. The image clears my head and I think of my sister Marcia - like I have been every morning since she died last August. Sisters are special creatures and you and I are both lucky to have at least one. Marcia was - and still is as far as I'm concerned - the oldest of my family of siblings. No one can ever knock her off that perch. Joanna will always be your older sib - pace setter - life example - fierce champion - strong ally (sp? God I'm a horrible speller) - helping hand - voice of reason - and more and more and more still. Love her and listen to her and try to be all those things in return.
