One Sunday, my sister, her boyfriend, and I had gone to a church picnic. I didn’t really know anyone besides her boyfriend’s family, who were all older than me. I sat on a bench by myself, watching the other kids play with each other. I felt so left out. Then, this girl named Marilan, came over to me and asked, “Do you want to go to the playground with us?” I was filled with so much joy that someone had seen my suffering, and decided to help me out. And of course I said, “Yes.” She was kind enough to introduce me to the other kids there, and we had a blast in the playground, cracking jokes. It was a really great day and I am so thankful it happened.
And to Marilan, Thank You
