Missy Tippens again, continuing with part two of my post from yesterday. I'd like to introduce you to my good friend, Lindi Peterson. I did an interview with Lindi about friendship. And as I promised, she dishes a little "dirt" on me. :)
M: What do you consider the most important characteristic of a good friend?
M: What things do you have in common with your best friends?
L: Faith, laughter, interests, compassion, willing to listen when a friend needs it.
M: What are your favorite activities to do with friends?
L: Get together and hang out and talk. I love writers retreats with my writer friends, I love bowling with my friends, I love family reunions where I can see my family. Generally I really like being around people.
M: Okay, I promised you'd tell something funny or embarrassing about me. So I give you permission to share. :)
L: I hope this isn't too embarrassing but I love how we can room together because I sleep through anything and apparently you snore, but I don't hear you---oh, unless you scream in your sleep--now that I do hear!! I would like to add that it's easy being friends with you (Missy!). We have so much in common, we can talk about anything. I feel like you are one of those people in my life whom I can turn to for anything at anytime. I get excited for you--am sad when you are---I really enjoy being such close friends with you.
Missy here again. Okay, so she softened the embarrassing info with kind words. Nice move. :)
It's wonderful to have such a good friend who I can call on for prayer, for advice, for encouragement and support. Thank you, Lindi, for being on our blog today!
Now for our readers... What do you consider the most important characteristic of a good friend?
