My Daughter The Good Friend

--by MakeSomeoneSmile, posted Jan 4, 2008

When I dropped my 3 1/2 year old daughter off at day care yesterday, one of her friends was sitting at a table alone crying. She sometimes gets upset when her mom leaves. My daughter plays with her and they are good friends. When we were sitting down and saw the little girl crying, I asked my daughter if she might want to go and sit by her sad friend. She said "Yes, I don't want her to be sad", scooped up her breakfast and went and sat by her friend. I watched her share her cereal and talk to the little girl.

As I walked to my car I was very happy to see that my little girl has a kind heart. When I got home last night, I asked her how her day was. She said it was good and that her friend wasn't sad anymore. She was proud to have shared her cereal with her and played with her all day. I thanked my daughter for being such a caring friend and told her I was very proud of her. She smiled and told me that she didn't like to see people sad.

I smiled, hugged her and told her what a wonderful little girl she was. When she said "I'm daddy's little girl", I couldn't help but smile and be a proud dad. Today at work I'm on the lookout for anyone who may look sad. I'll try to make them smile if only for a moment as a tribute to my little girl.
