DO UNTO OTHERS

Question Of The Week 04-15-13

"A friend is someone who will tell you that you have gunk in your teeth."

Are you the kind of friend you would want as a friend? If yes, how?  If no, why not?


Be sure and read my Sunday post to guess the number of eggs that will hatch this week.

  1. I am - I like to treat my friends with respect (the same way I like to be treated.)

  2. I think I would like me in measured doses. I tend to talk a little too much, but just about the time you are sick of me I need a nap!

  3. I think that could be a loaded question if you are like me...friendly but distant at the same time.

  4. I think I am, but I guess my friends would have to answer to know for sure.

  5. Lynn -- If only we all would practice respect for others.

    Tabor -- Who would ever be sick of you?

    Changes in the wind -- Loaded question for sure. We all know your best friend is Cowboy.

  7. Yes I think so. I love to help people look more cheerful than they did when I first meet them.
    I love to talk but also to listen.
    I love to share experiences and laughter and food and wine.
    Sometime tears.

  11. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. It meant a great deal to me.

    No, I'm not a great friend. I tend to neglect people. I'm probably quite selfish really.

  12. Chatty Crone -- You do a great job of that.

    Pat -- Food and wine with friends...what more can anyone ask?

    cube -- You are a caring person and believe it or not, there are many like you:)

    Kerry -- My best friend was like that. She enjoyed people as long as she didn't have to carry the conversation.

    Riot Kitty -- Yes you are!

    LL Cool Joe -- Glad to see you back and hope you realized from those who missed you that you are indeed a good friend and don't be so hard on yourself. We are all a little selfish. That is human nature. But at the same time you are a loving person with lots of thoughts of others.

  13. I have never been one to use the word friend lightly. But, yes, I am a good friend and how do I measure that? By the awesome quality of friends I have in my life...I figure it's a definite case of like attracting like :)

  14. I would like a friend who is like me because with me you know where you stand. I believe in giving TLC but sometimes I believe in tough love.

  15. I am always there for my friends in terms of joy and sorrow. Always extending a helping hands so yes, I would want my friends to my be there for me too when I'm down :D

  16. Talon -- Your qualities are awesome!

    Munir -- You are so right about TLC as well as tough love being needed in friendship.

    Shionge -- You are the type of friend we all need.

  17. I'm still friends with most of them from decades ago, but just have no time on opposite schedules to visit. If I weren't working so much for so little, n it didn't get me so sore, n I didn't have so many allergies to things everyone else has around them, I'd be a better friend than I am now.

    I always try to be kind n helpful, if sometimes a bit too honest about my feelings that folks don't want to hear, but listening is what friends are for.
    I'd like to hang out with my double n sing some harmony more often.

  18. I hope so. I do always try to help and be there if anyone needs me and even if they don't. :-)

  19. Snaggle Tooth -- I try to avoid giving unwanted advice even though I know I AM RIGHT! lol

    Kay -- Well you sound just like my sister:)
