The ABC's of A Good Friend... "B"

(These are two of my favorite people with Beautiful Hearts...)

I'd like to thank Arlee Bird for organizing the A-Z Challenge! This is my first time to do it...I have chosen a topic for the entire month. Since I write for younger children and we are doing the ABC's I thought I would do The ABC's of A Good Friend (and throw in a few random pictures, because I have a little bit of a photo addiction).
~B~
When I look for a friend I look for one with a beautiful heart.  Often times we are attracted to what is on the outside of people, but really matters is what is on the inside.  A person with a beautiful heart is one that you know you can rely on.  A person with a beautiful heart is one that truly listens.  A person with a beautiful heart is one who doesn't care what you look like like on the outside or what kind of car you drive or what subdivision you live in or even if you are published (yet) or not.  A person with a beautiful heart just likes you because you are you...
 
What other "B" words can describe a good friend?

  6. Hi,
    Love the idea of exploring friendship qualities for your A - Z, and especially the Beautiful Heart quality.
    Being there is another basis for a good buddy :-)

  19. Such a sweet post, Sharon! That's what I look for in a friend, too. A beautiful heart is the most important thing in a person. I'm pretty sure you have one of those, hon.

  21. That's lovely. Benevolence is great too -- someone who shares their kind nature with others.

  22. Buoyant. Which is one of the many things I like about you and your home here on the 'net. You're always afloat, a little beacon shining at passersby, sharing a bit o' light with them on what may have been a dark day at sea. I appreciate that. From the many comments and kindnesses I regularly see here, it's obvious that others do as well.

    Keep shining, Sharon. And thank you.

    Best,
    Joe Richardson

  29. This is very sweet. Do you sometimes wish you could see the inside of a person, the quality of their heart just by looking at them?

    Blessed is a good word to use when speaking of good friends that one has.
