Why would this be bitter sweet you ask? PJ recently suffered a big loss, her beloved father-in-law Scotty passed away and he had lived with her and her husband for quite some time. They had a special bond and in her posts PJ shared stories about the amazing love that surrounded them all in her home. She is one very special lady, always quick with a kind word and very supportive of others. She has been a great source of inspiration for me while my sister battles cancer. All the while she has carried her own burdens with grace and poise.
I am relatively new to blogging but I think that somewhere out in blogland there must be an award for just such a person as PJ. She is witty and can make you laugh like no other. She is inquisitive and really makes us all think. She is kind and loving and has a heart that shares despite her own sorrows. PJ can ask the hard questions one minute and then share her faith and love of God the next.
I wish I could wrap her in a big hug and ease the pain of this loss. She has written the most beautiful tribute to Scotty on her blog, such love, faith and devotion are rare and PJ is a shining example of all that is good in this world.
