Falling Into Books Blog Hop

Details for my giveaway:

- Please leave a comment below answering this burning question: What's the single most important characteristic of a meaningful relationship? (this is research for our next novel about a mother and her college daughter)

- For an extra entry into the hat, please join this site with Google Friend Connect on the right sidebar. One more entry for following me on Twitter. Please note if you did one or both of these in your comments below so I can count it properly. If you are already my friend and follower, thank you. We want to reward you with one extra entry (again make note in your comment).

The morning of Saturday, October 1 I will put all the names in a hat (with repeat names for extra entries) and have my oldest daughter pick. I know it's not as fancy as using an internet tool, but I haven't played with those yet and don't want to mess up my first official blog hop giveaway. I'll post a picture with my daughter pulling said name (for fun!).

Any questions, please leave a comment. Good luck!

I'm not entering the giveaway but thought I might give you my answer if it can be helpful.

The single most important characteristic of a meaningful relationship is loving someone despite there flaws - not the superficial love to someone who you believe is perfect because as humans we're not perfect. Hope I helped! :)

Trust. Whether it's an intimate relationship or a friendship. Trust is needed. Without trust, you can't be close to that person. If you don't trust in their sincerity what can you believe?

I think it depends on the type of relationship. Between mother and college daughter, I think that respect for your daughter is important. Letting her do what she needs to do even if you don't like her choice.

I'm a twitter follower. :)

Congrats on your first blog hop!

Thanks everyone for entering (and Maria for answering). Love the answers. Trust is winning out, and I couldn't agree more. I'll let you everyone know first thing on Saturday who our winner is. Don't forget to hop over and enter for some more book-related stuff!

Great comments to this post. I would add, we need to keep our sense of humor!

Tia Bach said...

Nadine, Please leave me your email if you are entering the giveaway. Sense of humor IS so important!

Trust, but since that's overused, I'd go with courage. Especially to stand up in the relationship and speak your thoughts or opinions, or even the courage to understand they're wrong or not.
