Faces in the Spaces

Today I learned something very special about my dear friend P. She was emailing me, and I learned that she also has a blog. As I was reading it, I learned a lot of things about not only her, but myself too. It was kind of like reading my life from another persons point of view.

But back to the point, which was, I learned that she is a better person than I ever knew, and that I am kind of stuck up. And self-centered. Ugh, yes, I know, when those two words are put together they are uglier than an elephants backside. But from that, I also learned that I could probably work harder to be a better person.

Starting with P, I'd like you to know that I will try to be a better friend from now on. You are such a good person, and I am so going to work on getting to your level. Keep doing what you're doing, and hey, I'd like to know who that special person was who sits behind you because...well...from my view it's the wall:P But anyway, I love you P!! And I promise that I will try to be a better friend to you.

You know, sometimes in life, it all gets going to fast and you don't even realize when it's happening, but sooner or later you stop thinking and just move on to autopilot. It does happen, and I'm just here to remind you to slow down and take a look at where you are now. How long has it been since you complimented someone who you barely know? Why don't you invite the boy who always eats alone to come eat with you? How long has it been since you've talked to the girl who befriended you on the bus that first day of school?

So, stop and turn around people. Take a look at all the faces in the spaces you recognize and start paying better attention, because I know that I will.
