I had my FTF all written out but when I saw that today was National Doughnut Day, I just had to change it up. just kidding. But when I saw the date, June 3, I decided that I would change my favorite.
Today my favorite is friends in honor of two of my friends who share today as their birthday.
The first is Marie-Claire. She was my boss for about 6 years and she is just the most fun person. Always enthusiastic. Always positive. Always ready to listen to stories about my kids. I remember that we had some clients in town and she took these clients to a shooting range -- by limo. I bet they all had a great time!
And then there's Trish. We became friends when I had only four kids. She had trouble getting pregnant and I remember feeling so rotten when I became pregnant with #5 .. but then something happened, she and her husband got three foster kids, and one of those was an newborn baby girl straight from the hospital (a long long story). That baby girl and my youngest were good friends until we moved to California. (As a side note, shortly after getting the three girls, she got pregnant too and then three more times so she has 7 kids!) Now, I only get to see Trish maybe once a year, but when we get together it feels like we've never been apart. Sure there's lots of stuff to catch up on and we never get it all said, but we still feel close when we're together.
Although this is a favorite, it is a bittersweet fave .. these are two people that I love, but I am so far away from them. :(.
