Yesterday Pat Erickson presented me with her published memoir. Pat was one of my “feral cats”. The ferals were my first group of graduates and they were called ferals because trying to teach them was like trying to herd feral cats! They are a beloved group of 5 amazing women. Stifle Yourself, Edith a memoir by Patricia Erickson is such an amazing book. I loved every word she wrote. Her writing is not only beautiful but so real. I have always loved listening to Pat read her stories each week, but now to actually have a published copy is so inspiring! I feel like a proud mother! We will be launching her book at my next luncheon which will be Friday, May 21st. As of right now we have 45 women attending to celebrate Pat! Woo Hoo!!! Way to go!!
