Hope is one of the most powerful feelings I know.
Hopelessness is one of the loneliest!

Is there someone that you can "be there" for today?

This is a friendship quilt that we made in first grade.
We used the new quilt 10" cut outs.

Each child wrote his name 
and drew a picture of himself 
in the center of the square.

The kids wrote important things 
about themselves 
in each of the four corners.

What do you do well?
What is your favorite color?
What is your best subject in school?
What do you like to eat?

Then, they passed around their squares.
Friends wrote words on another friend's square...
words that complimented the person
words that described the person
words that affirmed the person

Rachael is happy, nice, funny, helping.....

"Be there" for a friend today.
Let him or her know how you feel.

Affirmation brings hope!!!
