comforting your friend

Last week’s cartoon,  about not judging someone if they spend a major holiday with an electronic device,  is here. All rights reserved, and content including cartoon is © Donna Barstow 2014, which has many more cartoons for you. Or sign up on Facebook. Thanks!

This week's cartoon is about comforting someone who is sad. There's nothing wrong with feeling sad. Tears, and more tears. And how wonderful it is to have a friend nearby, whose shoulder you could cry on. Perhaps that friend knows a lot about makeup. Is that so wrong? She still wants to help.

This cartoon is dedicated to good friends everywhere.
