Sophie has a few best friends. But Ella is one of Sophie’s very, very special friends. They’ve been best buddies for about three years now. When Ella and Sophie are together, there are lots of laughs and hugs.
Ella is also very good with Sophie. I have never seen Ella get upset about anything. Ever. And I’ve spent a lot of time with her. Sophie, on the other hand, is definitely more moody than her friend. When Sophie gets agitated about something, Ella has the magic touch. She manages to make Sophie feel better just by making a silly face or comment.
When Ella works her spell, we see Sophie’s lips start their upward-curving trajectory toward a smile. Sophie is generally reluctant to submit to at first. She resists. But she can’t help it. Because Ella is just too funny.
Ella is also very thoughtful. She knows what Sophie likes and is always trying to make her feel good. Sophie is one lucky 6-year old. I wish we all had friends like Ella. Because if we did, the world would be a much happier place. Thanks, Ella!
