Friends in the Dark

dandelion|dandilyon|June—what a month! My cat died, my car got rear ended, work nearly killed me and I had two flat tires on my scooter… but… that cat was a good friend for 15 years, the girl who rear ended me became a good friend, and both flat tires happened with good friends at the rescue. On the whole, I think I came out of a tough month better off :) What did I learn from June?

“Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.” —Helen Keller
