Five years ago when Pat took me under his wing, I didn’t ask why, I was just really thankful to have someone so brilliant to guide me. He didn’t have to do it, and all these years later, when asked why, he says it’s because he sees much of himself within me.
Last night, we watched quietly from behind the scenes with so much pride, as the talented team that I have under my wing, cooked a beautiful meal for a cause that means so much to us both.
My team is everything to me, and I’m so proud of what they’ve accomplished, how they’ve grown, and am looking forward to their incredibly bright future.
