(My last birthday was joyful, thanks to the kindness of my bloggy friends.)
It's day 11 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).
Kindness is something that comes naturally to some people. I adore people who care deeply for others. People who are kind are a gift...they do things for others for no other reason than to help someone out. It really bothers me when people appear to be kind, but they are doing things for ulterior motives....once I catch you doing that, it's hard for me to trust you....
I don't usually enjoy my birthday. I've never seen it as a reason to celebrate...I'm just getting older and getting more wrinkles. We usually go out for dinner, but that's it. Anyway, I had the pleasure helping organize a surprise birthday wish for a fellow blogger last year. Then he asked one of my writing buddies when my birthday was and she told him. Well, he was so excited about my birthday, that I had to be excited too. His kindness and enthusiasm made me enjoy my birthday. Most of you know him already and you know how kind he is. Lenny Lee is one of the kindest and wisest bloggers out there and he's 11 years old. Thank you Lenny for being so kind to me...and being my cp! Thanks to Lenny's kindness and the kindness of all my bloggy and facebook friends I will celebrate my birthday from now on. (((HUGS))) to everyone!
Has anyone in the blogging world surprised you with their kindness? Can you think of any other "K" words that describe a good friend?
