Brown said she was in the kitchen when she heard footsteps on the porch.

“I was like ‘Okay, he’s getting ready to come in.’ So I turn my head and there it is. It’s like a little baby deer and him. Like, it wasn’t anything strange for him. It was really weird,” she said.

“I couldn’t even tell you, I was in shock. I was like, ‘No way. My mind is playing games with me.”

Brown said her son talked to the young fawn and told him that he has cereal inside. So, she let them eat some cereal together before making her son take him back to the tree line because “his mother would be looking for him”.


Friendship means familiar and liking of each other’s mind. People who are friends talk to each other and spend time with each other. They trust one another and also help each other when they are in trouble or are hurt. Friends are people who can be looked up to and trusted. They have your back, no matter what. A true friend will always have your best interests at heart.

Good friends are vitally important to your mental health and to the quality of your life. Friendship is an opportunity to love, to learn about yourself, to mature as a human being and to open up to the full experience of life. True friends are loyal and accept you for who you are during the good and bad times. Good friends are present, honest and trustworthy.

Friends also help us deal with stress, make better lifestyle choices that keep us strong and allow us to rebound from health issues more quickly. Friendship is equally important to our mental health. A study even suggested spending time with positive friends actually changes our outlook on life, for the better.

Value your friends greatly! They hold such importance in our sense of well-being and happiness!
