A Tribute to a Friend

Okay, this one is for my friend, Pat. I know, I know...two blog posts in one day, a new record for me, LOL! But, I wanted to post this on here, so everyone can see this. Pat, you are amazing! You touch me in so many ways and I don't even think you realize it. You think of others first...you are forever emailing me things that let me know that I've been on your mind. I'm humbled that I stumbled across you. To steal a line from "As Good As It Gets"...you make me want to be a better person. You are an example of what a good friend, a true friend really is!
I've learned...
to be more forgiving,
to get more involved,
to let myself relax,
to attempt to be more out-going,
to be more...me, since the day I met you.

I hope you don't mind, but I'm posting the "My Dearest Friend" poem here, because I want everyone to see the kind of woman you are!

My Dearest Friend
You smile and it brightens my day,
You move me with the sweet things you say,
You’re the light in a tunnel that seemed ever gray.
How was it that I lived without you?
There’s no words that could possibly imbue,
My dearest, Pat, in all that you do…
I will always be here to help you through!
You are my friend,
never to part,
side by side,
heart to heart!
I Love You!

  4. I could repeat back to you, every single nice thing you just said about me.
    When we were kids I remember saying it takes one to know one. Well friend that was never truer than right now. I recognize in you everything any one would cherish in a friend.
    Thank you for just being Anne.
