A Friend Like You: Patrice

Sometimes even I need a reminder of this sometimes. Thank you to my friend Patrice for this reminder…

I feel so lucky to have a friend like Patrice; you know the one that you can call on the phone and before you even say that something is wrong, somehow she uncannily figures it out. While I was pregnant with Baby Ian, I had to go to the hospital twice due to severe contractions. As you know the hubby wasn’t here, but not to fear, Patrice came to my aid. in. the. middle. of. the. night. She stayed with me the entire time and we repeated the process a night later. Yes, indeed; I feel very lucky to have a friend like Patrice.

So, guess what Patrice? To show how much I love and appreciate you my darling friend, I want us to get all dolled up to go on a date! My treat of course!
Yes, we’re going to the drive-in! I know, only your friend Stacey would take you to the drive –inSmile. And guess what you’re not going to see a movie. It’s a surprise…

I’m on my way! Yes I have something special for you in my suitcase(in case you were wondering)…

Later, at the drive – in…

Yes, instead of seeing a movie, we viewed this home in 3D! I know my friend and what she loves. Did you all enjoy it?

Patrice, our friendship has been to many “places” and that is it why it’s so reliable, honest, fun, pure, and unpretentious. Thank you for being my friend. Love you lots!! Have a grand weekend everyone and if you have great friends or a great friend, let them/him or her know it! Muah!Smile. XX
