(A Castle bathroom...)
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).
I hope you've been thinking about the qualities you'd like to see in a friend...
Sometimes you need a friend who has the courage to stand up to you. One that will tell you you are wrong. One that's not scared to say you shouldn't do something like, blast an agent or editor on your blog or wear a dress with massive pink and orange flowers on it to a formal event. Real friends will tell you...They will have the courage to not let you look foolish.
I look for compassionate friends...ones who care deeply. If you look at the word compassionate, part of the word is passionate. I'd never noticed that until today. I want friends who care with a passion; care about others, care about animals, care about our world, care about themselves, and care about our relationship.
What other "C" words do you know that represent qualities in friends????
