Book: That's What A Friend Is
Author & Illustrator: P.K. Hallinan
I love this book so much. It's one of my favorites to read to Caden. He thinks the illustrations are great, and I would have to agree. Every time we read it, it brings a smile to my face.
It reminds me of all the great friends I've had through the years and all the little crazy things we've done together. Is it just me, or does friendship get harder as we get older? I feel life is so busy that it's hard to squeeze in a random act of kindness some weeks. I've been trying to be a better friend this year. To be a better listener, to give of myself more willingly, or just write a short note to express my appreciation. Sometimes it doesn't feel like much, and I wish I could always do more. But sometimes all we need is a little thoughtfulness to push us along and know that someone is thinking of us to make all the difference in our own little world.
