About me

 Hi, my name is Patty, and welcome to my blog, "A Joyful Heart Journey." I feel I'm on a journey to a joyful heart. As far back as I can remember, I wanted to be a wife and a mother. I met my husband Paul on December 31, 1981, I was 21, and he was 27. We dated all through 1982, and we knew we wanted to get married. Since Paul was six years older than me, he wanted to ask my parents if he could marry me, which made my parents very happy; they said, "Yes."  Paul and I married on April 23, 1983. The Lord blessed us with four beautiful children within seven years: two daughters, a son, and another daughter.

In 2008 our lives changed forever; we lost our son tragically. Through the grief, we found a way to embrace life (although never the same). After the loss of our son, we both endured surgeries and recovery. On February 19, 2017, my life forever changed once again; my husband, Paul, passed away. 
God is taking the broken pieces of my heart, helping me reflect on grief, seeking joy, and keeping the faith.

I love going for walks, relaxing on Saturday mornings, and spending time with family and friends. 

Thank you for visiting my small humble blog.
