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 made...one 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!
