It was my first day at school. I had a new bag, water bottle, new books, shoes and socks and also a Dora shaped tiffin box. I was happy about going to school with all these new things, but what I felt sad about was that I had to make new friends too. I wouldn’t mind if I had old friends. So, I ran to the prayer room before leaving the house to ask God to find a friend for me that day itself. I felt that my first day of school would be very boring- sitting all alone only copying the notes and looking at the others talking and laughing with their friends. I reached my classroom. All were looking at me since I was new. Thank God! the teacher came fast, since all were shouting. We had to introduce ourselves. After I introduced myself and sat in my place I suddenly heard a small voice from my back. Somebody said, “Excuse me” and I turned around. To my surprise it was a beautiful girl. “Yes” I said, and then she asked me if I could be her friend? I was so happy that I couldn’t stop myself from saying yes. A friend on the first day of school itself!!After reaching home I ran to the prayer room knelt down and thanked God because before going to school I had asked God to find a friend for me that day itself. Her name is Beth. She is seven years old and her birthday is on 13th May, the same as mine. We are good friends now and from then on we do many activities together. We are and always will be best friends forever.
