10 Things I Like About My Best Friend

. at . 6 comments

416459_friends_on_skates_when_you_need_a_hand_I meant to write the following list for Valentines Day. But the week around this love holiday holds sad feelings for me and I’m usually sad/depressed. Even though I don’t want to be. This year was no different.

Anyway, this post is dedicated to my best friend with love and thanks for helping me grow and get through my rough patches.

  1. She faithfully engages in prayer.
  2. She believes the best about me.
  3. She brings the silly and slightly naughty out in me. (We have fun together.)
  4. She likes herself.
  5. She is devoted to her family.
  6. She has an ongoing, growing, love/grace relationship with Jesus.
  7. She has a sense of humor.
  8. She is honest and vulnerable about her growth areas. (This makes her approachable.)
  9. She tells me when I am wrong or need growth in an area. (She gives godly counsel.)
  10. She loves me according to my love language.

 Your Turn  . . .  What are some things you like about your best friend?

Writing prompt is from here, Creativity Portal.

    I like it how they inspire me to be better. I’m less tempted to do something wrong and more inclined to be good when they’re around.

      i agree, michelle. my best friend is definitely a good role model and her presence in my life helps me be a better person (not just a more fun and silly woman).

    I like that she is fun to be with and makes me laugh.

    I like that she works hard at doing what is pleasing to God, and encourages me to do the same.

    I admire her courage and sense of adventure.

    I respect her perseverance.

    I think she’s very smart.

    I value her wisdom.

    I am thankful for her consistent prayer support.

    I am inspired by her sacrifices.

    I am a better friend, wife, mother, because I have her in my life!
