Okay! I thought this would be easy, and it is not. There are many traits I like about myself, and many I do not like about myself. I decided to go with:
I have always loved people and chose to think the best everyone I meet until the individual gives me a reason not to like them. Even then, I will remain friends and am willing to work with them, but I can sense when an individual is not interested in being friends.
I am always loyal to friends, even when others have chosen not to feel the same. I got that trait from my mother. I remember a friend said some things that genuinely hurt my mother. My mother knew some things about this lady, and had she been a vindictive person, she could have what she knew to anyone who would listen and ruin this lady’s reputation.
Instead, she kept her mouth shut, and one day this lady showed up at my mothers’ house to apologize for what she had said, asked if it would be possible to be friends again. My mother accepted her apology, and they renewed their friendship. However, it was not the same as before. My mother remained loyal to her word of not sharing what she knew about her friend, and I work at doing the same, which is why I had a CEO tell me to have people take me to lunch when they wanted to talk. That is another story I will share some time, maybe.
I know you are wondering how I know all this! It’s because I was my mothers’ sounding board. She talked to me about most things. I am sure there were some things she did not share but very little. She did not have the money to go to a counselor, and she needed to talk.
The third trait is faithfulness. I am faithful to a fought. I believe when you make a promise, you keep it. When you commit to doing something for someone, you do it. I know! I am old-fashion, but that alright. We need more people to be old-fashion.
I am sorry to make this post so short. The truth is, I am uncomfortable speaking about myself. I am always happy to share the information I have learned with you. It is a great pleasure for me. I should have become a teacher, as my father suggested.
I miss my dad and my mom. I know they are watching over me, but I miss their presence. Mom, Dad, I love you.
Well! That is it for now. I do not want to start rambling as I become nostalgic about my parents and what I think of as the good old days for me.
Tomorrow will be day seven and will share my top 10 favorite foods. That will be a real challenge for me because there is much food I do enjoy eating. Oh! Well! Until tomorrow, stay safe, and keep the faith.
