Describe me in one word

Maria (friend in Texas)- Creative
Laurie (friend from Church)- gifted
Chris (aunt)- loving

There's an email going around. How it works is you send this to your friends:

Describe me in one word.... just one single word. Send it to me and to me only. Then send this original message to all your friends and see how many strange and interesting things they say about you. This is really fun!!

Here's how:

1. Hit the reply key and send me my one word.

2. Then return to this message, and forward it to your friends (including me) and see what people say
about you when limited to one word.

The Game is On! I want to tag everyone who reads this.

I have friends whom I've never met in the flesh, yet are very dear to me. I sent this out to friends/family who know me personally to see what their one word would be. I didn't send this to my cyber friends yet. I wonder how different the replies would be from my cyber friends who haven't met me in the flesh. Here are some replies from my family and friends:
Oops! I forgot Kim is the only cyber friend I sent this to.

Debbie (friend)- Zany
Kim (cyber friend)- Spiritual
Norma (surrogate mom)- Creative
Rita (work friend)- Different
Kara (friend)- Genuine
David (brother-in-law, the email was meant for my sister in law but David hijacked it)- Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious (yup, he's a dork)
Leyanna (my sister)- Beautiful (this made me cry. I hope she means beautiful on the inside)
Gracie (friend in Texas) - Unforgettable (this one made me cry too!)
Dani (sister in law)- Passionate
Eric (husband)- Passionate
Ryan (son)- Weirdo (he's a teenager, all teenagers thing their parents are weird, plus I make up silly songs to sing to my kids so he thinks I'm weird and a loser because I cry about things he thinks are silly)

I just got to thinking. There is nothing that can make me cry faster or grieve more deeply than when I hear of harm done to a child or an animal. It's a good thing I'm not God because I'd wipe out anyone who ever hurt a child or an animal.

Have fun playing!

Isn't this a fabulous, thought-provoking idea??? I received this from a friend of mine a while back. It was so hard to get my description of her into one word, but finally I realized "vibrant" was the one that would work.

Then I forwarded the email to a lot of people. I only got a response from about 10. =) I wonder if they just couldn't narrow it down to one word or if they just didn't have anything good to say! *ha*

Anyway, it was so sweet, the responses I got. And very funny, a friend of mine responded with supercalifragilisticexpialadocious. Very funny... The good thing, though, was I knew she meant it! My ex-mother-in-law replied with "beautiful", which definitely made me cry. One friend wrote back "true", and told me to ask her later what she meant because it was one little word that really meant a lot. I forgot to ever ask for the explanation... I should do that and hope she still remembers!

Anyway, thanks for posting this and reminding me of a very sweet memory.

This was a fun thing... I sent it to about 10 people and have only heard back from about 4... Hope to get more... Ya know... Doing a scrapbook page about our answers and what everyone said about us would be fun... I am keeping all my emails...
It's nice to scrap the things people say about you...:)
