This was sent to me a while ago. It’s taken some time to respond because I have been thinking about it. I am personally fairly mediocre, but when I read this, I knew what I really wanted to do was to list reasons why my friends were awesome.
Here you are, in no particular order, and if I don’t list five reasons why you are awesome, it is only because I have been too lax in reading everyone’s blogs with the attention they deserve.
Ruffian706: She has a way with words, both written and spoken. She doesn’t just say something nice, she says something nice in a way that makes you feel good about yourself for the rest of the day. She is an excellent listener. I have had great conversations with her even though neither of us had said a word. She is a great co-conspirator in all things needing co-conspirating and has mad skills with hand tools.
AK: He is awesome because he is my true love. I could list all the ways he is awesome, but I will whisper them in his ear later. I ❤ you, AK.
KristinTracy: She always has something inspirational and/or funny to read on her blog.
Bowman: RD is always good for a laugh. He can flip to his serious side and remind you not to take life so seriously. He is the kind of person you want as a friend. He has multiple personalities in a good way, such that he should be a radio personality or a comedian.
Flugvogel: She is awesome because she absolutely has a heart of gold. She is outgoing and friendly and never ever afraid to be herself. She has a great sense of humor that keeps us all moving forward. She is smart and not afraid of change.
K-I know that-H: She is so cheerful, which is a great thing these days. KH is awesome because she is the soul of kindness. She is one of those people who makes a great listener, she doesn't try to tell you what do, she just understands.
MLE: MLE is awesome because she is honest. She is one of those people who are totally real; what you see is what you get. Very down to earth, in the best possible meaning of that phrase. She is brave and tries new things for herself.
Mippytown: She is very diplomatic and always knows the right thing to say. She is diligent and persistent in achieving her goals. She is one of those people who you can be totally comfortable around, because she is so non-judgmental and sympathetic.
Shona_of_zillmere: Shona’s laugh is infectious and her cheerfulness is catchy. She is smart and resourceful. And she is Australian which pretty much makes you automatically awesome.
CAM: She is a crazy cat lady in the good way. She is the kind of person who doesn't give up when faced with problems and she encourages others to get involved. She is always trying to help others. She is brave.
ET: My bro for life. He is very funny and likes to make people smile. His jokes are never “jokes”; his pranks are rather innocuous. He is the kind of person you can be proud of saying he’s family and a friend. He appreciates beauty and beautiful things.
Brandee1812: She saved the lives of two beautiful kittehs. Anyone choosing adoption is automatically awesome.
JPB2716: He is very down to earth and easy to spend time with. He tells it like it is and his no bullshit way of dealing with things is very refreshing. He is very funny and constantly makes me laugh. He has a wonderful way of applying movie quotes to everyday life.
Nina: Nina is a great reminder that, although there may be time and distance between you, friendship can last a really long time. She loves her family and when you're around, she makes you feel as if you're a part of it. She has amazing love for her children and has her priorities straight in life.
