Writer's Workshop....6 words from a 'loved' one

***Updated....go to the end....
I've always wanted to do one of these workshops...and maybe I did it wrong, but I answered:
2.) Ask a loved one to use 6 descriptive words to describe you and report your findings. How well do they know you?
Since my hubby is working long hours, I asked a friend....we share a love thing too right? So here from my dear bloggy/real life friend is her list....unedited and with her definitions....I swear I didn't bribe her either....though one bottle of Diet Pomegranate 7up could go a long way...on her own she wrote that I am:

Amusing: evoking laughter…great company; can find the funny in every situation

Reflective: meditative…constantly thinking about how she can improve as a person…mom, wife, friend; not willing to settle for comfortable

Goodhearted: friendly, warm-hearted, caring, considerate…genuinely cares about those important to her; wants everyone to feel welcome and included

Supportive: carries the weight of others…the friend who is there the moment you need her, puts herself aside to support you when you are in need and does so without judgment

Warrior: one who is in battle…goes to battle for those she cares about, covering them in prayer and lifting them up; spiritual encourager

Genuine: free from dishonesty, true…sincere with who she is, open and upfront about her strengths and weaknesses; honest and truthful; a loyal friend
How's that for a late-night infomercial. I'm not sure who she had in mind when she was writing this....but I'll claim it for now....until the identity police come to take me away........She makes me sound lovely. I want to be my friend. Now if only everyone perceived me through such rose-colored glasses.....well atleast her and I can mutually admire each other :D See my list for her here.....we didn't peek BEFORE we posted either!
That's what friends are for right?
And for my UPDATE:
So after so many giggles about husbands giving stinkery responses to this list I just HAD to ask my lovie for his list....
So last night, while he was half asleep, I was shaking the bed....... he said all dreamily... "Sparkly"
.....cute.....undefined....does he mean my eyes, or my teeth?? ;)
So I left him to sleep.....man, some people acting all sleepy since they need to get up at 4pm...the NERVE!
This morning I found this list....no explanations.....just scratched out on a notecard...seven words....but two linked together. I'm guessing this is his list:
Sparkly/Dazzling
Captivating
Companion
Educator
Significant
Remarkable
I must have made him some GOOD coffee this morning....or maybe he saw the new chocolate covered macaroons I bought for his lunch....
Either way, I felt all giddy. Really, I felt .....like a rare gem he had found.....(still can't get past the first two words ;)
And I was BAFFLED by the lack of negative words......though last night when I suggested he use "Impatient" as I was trying to press him before he nodded off....He DID say I could use "Aggressive".....so there you have it....I'm aggressive. Poor guy.
I think I owe him his own personal word lovefeast....stay tuned!

Visiting from Mama Kat's...

You do have a lovely friend! How generous and lovely she was! I want a friend like that! I love your line about the "identity police coming to take you away." Funny!

Mama Wheaton said...

I too came over from Mama Kat's.
She is a friend worth keeping around and from the sounds of it so are you!

blueviolet said...

So unfair that she has NOTHING bad to say about you. You must be a heck of a gal!

Warrior. What a great descriptive word. It's great that she thinks of you as a spiritual encourager... And a funny, caring, loyal friend. With friends like her, who needs the husband, anyway?

I love warrior as a descriptive word. Damn...that makes me want to have you in my corner!

Friends are always the best one's to ask such questions. After all, spouses have to live with you.

Mama Kat said...

So sweet! Sparkly is cute...like something a kid would say. ;)

And I love "warrior"...very cool.

1-I love that he left you a notecard with no explanations with his words for you on it.
2-Sparkly - heh! What are you a vampire from the Twilight series? (that fell flat if you haven't read them)
3-I love the words your friend used for you. They're very unique and strong words. You should be proud to have earned them!

Andrea said...

These are words that you need to write out (perhaphs cross-stitch) and hang up someplace to remind yourself what a special person you are when things don't seem to be going your way.
