New Friend
Barbara E. Foley

I have a new friend
whose name is Mini.

She is a woman
who wears many hats.

Perhaps that is why
God named her Mini!

Just a few of her many hats are:

 loyal friend, devoted wife,
loving mother, doting grandmother,
chef extraordinaire, gracious hostess,
healing physician, devout priestess,
willing chauffeur, and always
most obviously,
Indian Goddess.

All this I observed
in just three days.

What wonders might
three weeks reveal?
