You know, the thing about that “tell me if you want me to tell you how great you are” meme is that it seems pretty weird asking to be complimented.
Instead, I randomly chose three names from my friends list by clicking in the friends drop-down in Semagic, closing my eyes, and letting the mouse click wherever it wanted. (It took about seven tries to get three names. 🙂 ) And I hereby offer voluntary praise of the three randomly chosen friends:
has had some pretty tough times in the past few years, and I think I only know a fraction of it. But when I met her in person last year, she was all smiles, and such a delightful person to be around. I love that about her.
has always struck me as a deeply caring and very compassionate person. Her humor style is such that she’s likely to play that down, but she’s proven over and over again that she’s willing to help her friends in need, and that she feels pain for those who are hurting. I love that about her.
is such a wonderful person to know. When we speak of him, Karsten and I don’t call him “Joe” or “Joe Decker;” it’s always “Happy Joe Decker.” You can’t help but let a little of that warm disposition rub off on you. And I love that about him.
