My Ode to Patty!

I'm at my friend Patty's and she has reminded me that it has been 3 months since I've updated this blog!! okay so this is for her! Of course she really knows everything I'd put on here because we've talked non stop for 2 days!! I've loved every minute of it! So instead of telling you some new things in the life of my family.(I promise I'll do it in another post) I thought I'd tell you all about her.
Patty is the kind of friend I always wish I could be. She's amazing. She's the kind of friend who always calls first, and doesn't make you feel bad because you didn't call. One way I like to describe her is Patty sticks. When you let her into your heart and your life she's there to stay! You couldn't shake her if you tried, but the point is you wouldn't try. You'd never want to lose a friend like her.
She's thoughtful in the little ways that make the biggest difference. She sends little cards, or housewarming gifts, little things that others don't think of. She never forgets a birthday or an important event!
Patty is the best kind of sounding board. She listens when you need her too, and she gives sound advice when you ask for it. But most of all she empathizes. She knows how you feel and recognizes and understands what you need.
And her best quality (in my humble opinion) is she says it like it is. You always know where you stand, and I love that about her! We all need someone in our life to tell it to us straight, and she does but she does it with love, because she doesn't like to hurt people.
My friend Patty has always been there for me. She's helped me through some rough patches in my life and I'm grateful everyday that she's my friend. But truly she's more than just a friend. She's amazing
She has two of the most beautiful girls I've ever met, and she's an amazing mom. I know she worries about being a good mom (like we all do) but she doesn't need to worry, she's incredible. She's such an example to me, of a good mother, and a good friend. She cares so much about others, I wanted her to know how much I care about her. I love her so much! I only wish we lived closer!!!!
I would wish that everyone could have a friend like Patty. Even if she were my only friend I would be truly blessed.

I love you Patty! Thanks for everything you do for me!

This picture was taken a few years ago, but it's still one of my favorites!
