Dear Friend

Dear Friend,
As you got up this morning, I watched you and hoped you would talk to me, even if it was just a few words, asking my opinion, or thanking me for something good that happened in your life yesterday.  But I noticed you were too busy trying to find the right outfit to put on and wear to school.
I waited again.  When you ran around the house getting ready, I knew there would be a few minutes for you to stop and say hello.  But you were too busy. At one point, you had to wait fifteen minutes without nothing to do except sit in a chair.
Then I saw you spring to your feet.  I thought you wanted to talk to me but you ran to the phone and called a friend to get the latest gossip.
I watched as you went to school and I waited patiently all day long.  With all your activities, I guess you were too busy to say anything to me.  I noticed that before lunch you looked around.  Maybe you felt embarrassed to talk to me, that is why you didn’t bow your head.  You glanced three or four tables over and you noticed some of your friends talking to me briefly before they ate.  But you didn’t.
That’s  okay. There is still more time left and I have hope that you will talk  to me.  Even yet, you went home and it seemed as if you had lots of things to do.  After a few of them were done you turned on the TV.
I don’t know if I like TV or not.  Just about anything goes there & you spend a lot of time each day in front of it, not thinking about anything; just enjoying the show.  I waited patiently again as you watched TV and ate your meal.  But again you didn’t talk to me.  As you did your homework, I waited again.  You did what you had to do.
At bedtime I guess you felt too tired.  After you said goodnight to your family you plopped into bed and fell asleep in no time.
That’s okay because you may not realize that I am always there for you.  I’ve got patience.  More than you will ever know.  I even want to teach you how to be patient with others as well.  Because I love you so much.  A long time ago, I left a wonderful place called Heaven and came to Earth.  I gave it up so that I could be ridiculed and made fun of.  And I even died so you wouldn’t have to take my place.  I love you so much that I wait everyday for a nod, prayer, thought, or a thankful part of your heart.  It is hard to have a one-sided conversation.
Well you are getting up again and once again I will wait with nothing but love for you; hoping that today you will give me some time.
Have a nice day!
Your friend,
P.S.  Do you have enough time to send this to another person?
