When I Was In Year Six....

I was having many troubes with friends - I only had one and she had moved interstate.

I was being teased about my make-up by the 'popular' girls (unfortunately popularity does exist in peer groups as young as eleven!). The most 'popular-boy-in-school' wrote me a little note on some torn paper saying "They just jealous. You look good."

It might sound trivial, but this note changed my life! I thought, if he thinks I look ok, then I must not be as bad as those girls make me feel. I was able to chang my entire social life with those words. I disregarded those girls and became friends with others. I became friends with this boy as well.

To this day, I have not forgotten the elation, happiness and utter JOY that note, in one small moment in time, brought to me.

And yes... I still have the note more than ten years on...
