I loved your intro to this year’s All God’s Creatures. I so identified with your story. The popular gang in my class told me to meet them so I could be in their gang. They asked me to wait in greenhouse while they decided, then came and asked what time I had to be home. I told them 4.30 and they said so sorry but that was now so we could sort this another time. When I got home it was only 3 o’clock!! I was devastated. But God brought good out of it as a few days later a girl who was not from my school but was in their gang came and said her mum insisted she apologies. In spite of this unpromising start Colette became by best friend and for years we did everything together. I too came to distrust people and love animals way better even now. Thank you for sharing.

I’m so glad things worked out for you! Bless you, Colette! In my case the two girls just went snobbing and snubbing on their way and I ended up with a friend named Marcia Magdelano. Who always had my back. Thanks for writing–I love hearing from readers!
