Let me introduce you to a special friend of ours. Pat has been a friend and fellow-laborer (as Apostle Paul would say) during the three years we've been re-located to the Midlands. She's rejoiced with us in good times and mourned with us in difficult ones. She's near and dear to my heart for many reasons but one of the most important is that she has been a loving, patient mentor to our oldest child.

E. had the opportunity to work with "Pittypat" at the church office, worship with her, socialize with her (see, homeschoolers DO socialize), and talk about Pat's adorable grandson :). Through it all, E. had the opportunity to see that Pat's godly character is the real deal, inside the church and out.

Pat took E. to lunch today and then blessed her with a beautiful quilt that she that not only is a piece of art, but also reflects E.'s personality...her love of God...and coffee.

So, though she's probably going to be embarrassed if she reads this shoutout, I just had to say WE LOVE YOU, PAT!

Later Days!

PittyPat, I know this sounds cheesy, but I don't care. :) You have truly been my best friend in the time I've been here. You've taught me so much, you've listened to me when I needed to vent, you've rejoiced with me and prayed for me, you've been an example of a wonderful godly woman in my life, and so, so, much more! I can't tell you how grateful I am that you would take the time to help me in so many ways and to care for me and help shape me into the person I am today. THANK YOU!!!
I love you so much, PittyPat! May
GOD bless you and you're family immensely for all you have done in my life, and in my family's life. You will forever hold a place in my heart. :)
