Red Gingham Lovin'

Keely walked into my First Grade class eight years ago - no, she probably did not walk. She might have skipped, bounced or twirled, but she most definitely did not walk! How a child of 6 can have so much joy must only be because the sweet Lord was having an extra special Happy Day when He Made her!

Along with Keely came truly the most generous mother I have ever known. A gift giver! A cookie, cupcake and jam maker! Ultimate volunteer! Best hugger, exuberant encourager, and dear friend to me and every staff member on campus!

Sweet Leslie!

She gifted me this adorable casserole dish and tray as a good bye, as Keely graduates from 8th grade this year. She said, "it has Patti all over it!" I squealed with delight! Red Gingham! A white picket fence and a ladybug! A garden of sweet flowers! Ummmmmm, I don't cook very much, but this piece is so cute it's out on my counter every day!

Oh my, Sweet Leslie!

The Lord blesses me every time I turn around! Through kind and dear friends who know me. It really is a Red Gingham day!
