(Susan Fields has all the qualities you could want in a friend, plus she's an awesome writer!)
Today is day 8 of Arlee Bird's A-Z Challenge! Since I write for younger children and we're doing the ABC's, I thought I'd do The ABC's of A Good Friend (and throw in a few random pictures, because I have a bit of a camera habit).
~H~Honesty is so important in a friendship. If you can't trust a friend, you can' really call them friend. Once trust is lost due to deception, it is really hard to earn it back. Having happy friends makes you happier. Everyone gets down and having friends to lift you back up is a blessing. I've been given that gift many times. Humility is an important quality too. Have ever been at a party and there's been someone who thought the party was for them...and it wasn't. They seemed to need to be the center of attention no matter what the occasion. They seem to think they are the best at everything. Yeah, not my kind of friend. I like my friends to be a bit more humble than that. Susan has all these qualities and more...I realized I haven't seen her since her birthday last August and it made me a bit sad. For those of you who don't know, we used to live down the street from each other and walk our dogs together. I hope you'll hop over and say "hi" to Susan.
Do you have a special friend you want to give a shout out to today? What "H" qualities do they have?
