What a Friend Would Do

Have you ever walked past a mirror and noticed your hair was messed up, and wondered how long it had been that way?
OR
Have you ever itched your nose and discovered *something* hanging just outside your nostril?

When situations like those happen to me, it makes me wonder if I have friends.

Because friends wouldn't let that happen.

A friend would tell you that your hair is messy and needs attention.
A friend would tell you there's a booger hanging from your nose.
A friend would offer you gum or a mint, if your breath was bad.
A friend would tell you about the broccoli stuck between your teeth.
A friend would ask if you really meant to only wear one earring.
AND
A friend would suggest you go to the bathroom to take care of the very ripe white-head on your chin.

That's what a friend would do. Because a friend sees what you can't see, and she looks out for you.

Now, go. Be a friend! *wink*

Hmmm, sounds like you might have been in a situation recently when you needed a 'friend'???? I always appreciate a friend who will tell me what others will not.

I need to let Christen read this! haha I tell her all the time, I wouldn't point out that kind of stuff if I didn't love her!

I'm "that friend" that will point out stuff like that, b/c I'd want my friends to do the same for me! ;o)

Glad to know I'm a good friend. :o)

Leah - That, and it's on my mind because I am constantly 'being a friend' to the folks at Edgewood. I always remind them (when I'm fixing their hair, or wiping crumbs from their chin) "This is what friends do!" :)

Jodi - Yes. She needs to know you're looking out for her. *wink*
