Friends - 3
Author: Barbara Goodhew


We meet certain people at certain times.
I met Darlene to learn faith.

I met my husband to learn humor and loyalty.
I had my kids to learn understanding.

I met some to learn that rudeness and
inconsideration is intolerable.

So everything I am today I am part of everyone
thats been in my life.

Good and Bad.
