Au Pairs’ friendship.

Today is Friendship Day. Friendship Day celebrations take place on the first Sunday of August every year. The tradition of dedicating a day in honor of friends began in US in 1935.

Being an Au Pair means being a part of a host family and performing childcare and related tasks. Au Pair Responsibilities are take care of the children, do some light household duties, and provide with homework help and tutoring for school age kids. During the Au Pair program many Au Pairs develop a life-long friendship with the parents and, especially, with the kids.

Being an Au Pair means being a new member of a community and meeting new people.  Au pairs meet many new friends at Au Pair meetings, at College and on Facebook and make lifelong friends.

Time flies fast, some day Au Pairs will return home and leave friends but not friendship!

Here is a story about friendship you may enjoy.

One day two friends quarreled and one of them slapped the other. Latter, feeling the pain,  but without saying anything, one friend wrote in the sand:

– “Today my best friend gave me a slap.”
They continued walking and found an oasis and decided to swim. The friend who got slapped nearly drowned, and his friend saved him. When the friend who got slapped,  felt strong enough to walk, he found a stone and cut in :

-“Today my best friend saved my life.”

The friend, who slapped him, asked:
– When I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now you carved on a stone. Why?The friend said:
When someone hurts us, we should write it in the sand, the winds could erase it. But when someone does something good, we must engrave it in stone,  so no wind can ever erase it.

Today, friends living in two corners of the world are just a mouse click away from each other.  Don’t forget to convey wishes to your friends.
