2. What do you value most about your friends?
Keeping it real. They don't patronize me. They are my true mirror.
3. Are your friends your sounding boards?
My best friend and husband is my primo sounding board. He is a good listener and always helps me work my way through the latest in my life. Kathy and I always pick up the phone and hash over "the latest in our lives". I've been blessed to have blog friends come into my life that are always a phone call away(Hallie, Kimberly, Laura, Steph among a few) that have been so supportive and helpful.
4. What is your favorite activity to share with your friends?
Being together and talking, whether it be in person, by phone or computer.
