A story is told about a soldier
who was finally coming home
after having fought in Vietnam.
He called his parents from San Francisco.
"Mom and Dad, I'm coming home,
but I've a favor to ask. I have a friend I'd
like to bring home with me."
"Sure," they replied, "we'd love to meet him."
"There's something you should know
the son continued, "he was hurt pretty
badly in the fighting. He stepped
on a land mind and lost
an arm and a leg. He has nowhere
else to go, and I want him to come live with us."
Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed.
They make you smile and
encourage you to succeed
They lend an ear, they share a word of praise,
and they always want to open their hearts to us.
