What Really Matters stories bring you closer to your children
Story of A Mouse Full of Fears
Dorenda Mouse enjoys being friends with Sonya Squirrel. But Dorenda cannot help comparing herself to Sonya.
She believes she does not have the positive character traits that Sonya had. Also, her home isnt as nice as Sonyas.
Deep inside, Dorenda is afraid that if she invited Sonya over, Sonya wouldnt want to be her friend anymore. Dorenda fears rejection.
Those feelings are strong enough to prevent Dorenda from reciprocating in the invitations to visit.
Will Dorenda realize that good friends take turns?
Will she overcome her insecurities and invite Sonya to her home?
Perhaps youre like Dorenda and fear how a friend will accept your home. Maybe youre afraid your friends wont like you anymore.
Its time to follow through with taking turns with your friends. When you reciprocate, youll leave your fears behind and experience the true joys of friendship.
