Wholehearted Friendship

"Mom, Cassie and I are wholehearted friends again!"

"You are?!"

"Yes, because we both have decided that it's the best thing."

"Well, that's awesome, Olivia! Remember the other day when you cried and cried because Cassie said that she wasn't going to be your friend anymore and I said that very soon she would change her mind?..."


"See...isn't it good that she's decided to be your friend again? You'll have to remember that the next time that she says she's not going to be your friend...remember that soon enough things will be back to normal and you'll be best friends again."

"Not BEST friends, Mom, we're WHOLEHEARTED friends!"

"That's even better!"

"You want to know why we're wholehearted friends?"

"Yes, why?"

"Because we've both decided that we hate Darren."


"Olivia, it's not nice to hate anyone. Jesus wants us to love everybody."

"I know Mom but he tore up the horse that I drew for him. Just how am I supposed to get past that? huh?! Jesus didn't like it very much when Darren tore up my horse drawing!"

"Jesus might have been disappointed in Darren, but Jesus still doesn't want you to hate him. You need to forgive Darren for tearing up your horse drawing."

"Okay - but I'm only going to forgive him this time. ...he does it again and he's going to get hit with Kung-Fu because my friend Dylan knows Kung-Fu and he's going to stand up to the crazy boy bully at recess so he'll for sure stand up to Darren!"

"Who is the crazy boy bully?"

"I don't know his name. I just call him crazy boy. NOW do you get it why I can't be friends with Darren?!"


" doesn't matter. I have to draw Cassie a picture because she's my wholehearted friend..."

"...and besides, Darren thinks I'm stupid because I got a library book about tomatoes. Well guess what?! Someday when I'm a famous tomato farmer THEN he'll be sorry!!"

Tell Olivia Mrs. Mac is very interested in her tomato book and will be checking out our local library for a copy of it. And as far as a boy calling her stupid, I think she fairly well put him in his place :). The on again/ off again friendship is on again. Nice. What a little diplomat you have! She's a keeper.
