Benevolence. She is indeed benevolent, for she is interested in her fellow being and because of this she holds aloft the guiding torch of wisdom to make this a better world in which to live.
Enthusiasm. This is her next most wonderful trait. This is a quality that has a magic all its own. With her enthusiasm she sparks the warmth of Friendship that dispels worry, fears, and doubt. Whether she is 19 or 90, her enthusiasm abounds in her endless wonder and sweet amazement at the stars, for her heart receives only messages of beauty, cheer and courage. She is always young at heart!
Tolerance. Yes, this trait is a must, for it allows her to let others believe in their faith and to follow their choice. Because she is tolerant she will never impose or domineer others with her will.
Altruism. She is always thinking of others first. Because she is unselfish, she devotes her time to finding ways in which to serve, to render kindness to all. She is the yellow rose that brightens the sick room just as the ray of sunshine brightens the day.

Ingenuity. She has this trait in abundance because she will find a way to do what has to be done, to lend a hand to assist a neighbor..a friend..a sister.
Initiative. She has initiative because this quality just fits in with her pattern of thinking.
