some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it."
This is Patrick. He is 86 and he stopped me in Leeds yesterday to ask me how my day was. He then asked if by any chance I had time for a coffee.
Meetings cancelled - I spent 2 hours with the most wonderful man.
He opened doors for me, told me about his marriage to his late wife and shared pictures of his family. He said that when he married his wife, he told her "the best is yet to come"...and that he still lives by that now.
Patrick was the perfect reminder that amongst the hustle and bustle of everyday life and work, time really is the greatest gift to give someone. It was the best gift I've received in years.
