Four Lunch Time Friends
--by gamelongirl, posted Feb 28, 2008
My 14 year old son was sitting at the lunch table alone on his first day in a new school, having come in after the year started and into a completely new system where he knew no one.
As he was sitting there, 4 girls walked up to him and asked if it were his first day there, to which he replied "Yes". They then invited him to sit with them and share his lunchtime with them. That one small act of kindness touched my heart as only a mother can understand for her child. These four girls opened up their hearts and their lunchtime to take in my son and made him feel as though he belonged.
The next day I suggested he take them a Tootsie Roll pop and a Smile Card to let them know how much their kindness had meant to him. His older sister laughed at the gesture saying it wasn't cool. Later that day, my son came home with all four girls phone numbers! Since that day he and the girls have become regular lunchtime buddies.
Love that you had your son give a smile card and pop..the kindness will be spreading and that is how it should be! Thx for sharing, Brighteyes ;)
