The school year keeps trudging along and I swear the time between the first day of school to Veteran’s Day takes forever since we get no time off. October 24th came and went in a blur of review for tests and homework. It wasn’t until I woke up this morning that I realized it’s significance. It was the anniversary of me waking up the next morning. That made last night the anniversary of the first time I ever went to a carnival – and all the good and bad things that happened because of it.
Okay, I know the carnival didn’t really cause it, but it’s the key thing that got everything going in my mind. Anyway, at the end of it all I gained a friend. For someone like me, it’s hard to let someone in. But I did and I am forever glad I did. Without Patrick, I would never have…. wait you don’t know about that part yet. I don’t want to spoil it for you.
Anyway, tonight I’m reminded that you are never really alone and a friend is waiting, if you just let them in.
