Today, October 15, 2016 is the day I picked to start a 52 day journey into my book. I am doing this journey, now in honor of one of my very best friends, Patty Dresser. Patty's life was tragically taken from her and from us, the people who loved her, this past week. I have been in shock and struggling to comprehend this unbelievable loss. I simply can't believe that I can't just call her up and chat about our day - we talked almost everyday. We talked about our dreams, passions, men, everyday struggles, business, mostly the future. I'm going to miss so much her words of support and encouragement, miss laughing together, making plans, talking about everything or even nothing. She was a true friend in every sense of the word. Now, I have my future without her in it, feels very lonely...
Our friendship we treasured. I was in Indiana with Patty the summer of 2011 when truly everything in both of our lives were in transition. I was in the beginning stages of writing this book that summer at the same time I was looking for my next business move (she & I created Innovative Network Connections). And what most people didn't know, is it was also the same time I was struggling with making the decision to divorce. She listened, commiserated, supported and listened some more.... I could not have made it through that time with her.
I love Patty like a sister, she was my sister - my soul sister. I know she is happily at peace on her next assignment and I know she will be with me everyday in the memories we made. I'm grateful for those wonderful memories. I feel like a part of me is missing. I miss her so much...
So, Patty, you are gone but never forgotten as I know you will be with me as I pursue the dreams in my heart because you are in my heart too.
I love you, Sis.
