Discuss/Describe three virtues you admire in a specific friend or family. When will you make it a point to encourage him or her about these observations?
My best friend Amy is hard-working, kind, and I think a lot more patient than I am. I mean, handling three kids that are as loud and obnoxious as her kids are sometimes has got to require a lot of patience. And she doesn't mind that I talk a lot when we're together, unlike some people (like my mom). Maybe it's a testament to our long friendship (we've been friends since fourth grade). Our friendship has been tested the last ten years or so, with her moving away and getting married and having kids and stuff. We've reconnected online and also now that she lives down here again. But it still holds true.
I will try to encourage her about this stuff when I see her next. Don't know when that will be though. We try to get together on my days off from work, but she's got a life too, plus she gets sick a lot.
