Story by Anjuli Paschall
Before you go to your friends house for a play date, text her this:
I fully expect there to be baskets of laundry in the family room, toys on the floor, and children in pjs. Don’t straighten the pillows or wipe down counters. Please don’t make a fancy appetizer dish, feed us vegetables, or make the beds. I anticipate all the kids will fight, be loud, and ask for snacks (constantly). I can handle that. Your life isn’t too much for me.
I just want to see you.
Even if we start 12 conversations we never finish, it’s just nice to be with you. Let’s warm up nuggets, put on a Disney movie and do those dishes together. I’m so thankful for a friend like you. I’m grabbing Starbucks and, of course, I’ll be late.❤️ LET’S KEEP OFFERING FREEDOM IN OUR FRIENDSHIPS❤️ If you’re lucky enough to have a friend like this, let her know!
