|Hi Caleb, Jonathan and Joanna! I sure loved being with you! Your friend, Mrs Connie|
They are part of a family who are long-time friends of ours, and of the whole extended Patty family!
Our friendship with them goes back before all of us were even born...all the way back to Dave's grandpa who farmed with their great grandpa many years ago here in Oregon. It's always a blessing to get to see them!
My mom, dad and brother drove up from Eugene just to have lunch with us in Portland! What fun to sit in a German restaurant for several hours, telling stories, laughing and enjoying family time together.
And then, to top it all off, this evening my spiritual parents and long time best friend met us for dinner.
My cup is overflowing with blessings and goodness from the Lord these past two days. On a trip like this where we're on the go, it's deeply nourishing to be with dear friends and family to get tanked up and loved on in order to have what we need to keep going.
Thank you dear family and friends for loving us so well!
