This is my friend Laura:
We ran together on Wednesday morning and I complained at length about Faith. (She is truly a difficult, strong-willed, demanding toddler, more than any kid I’ve ever had.)
Well, on Wednesday afternoon, she showed up at my house, with her van running and said: “Hey, I’m taking Katie to gymnastics. Can I bring Faith along and just watch her while she runs around the gym? I think she might enjoy it.”
Laura’s youngest is 4. Laura has 4 kids. Laura’s in the Relief Society Presidency. Laura is going to back to school to be a nurse. Laura could just sit at gymnastics and read a book or catch up on homework, but instead she just whisked away my difficult baby for an hour of chasing and cracker crumbs.
If that’s not true friendship, I don’t know what is.
