Showing she cares
December 18, 2023

By Joanna, Catholic Partnership Schools Healthy Courier | Just a couple days ago, I was filling out my high school applications. It was beginning to make me very anxious and gave me anxiety because of all the complications and the deadline.

As I was hastily typing in the information, my friend noticed that I was very uneasy and irritated. She told me to take a breather and assisted me the rest of the way. Her reassurance and words of encouragement showed me how much she really cared. It took us a great amount of time. However, I will never forget how she prayed for my acceptance in that school as I did for her.

Every so often, it doesn’t take a lot to provide some words of encouragement; it can really make someone’s day.
