A Mother's Story of "PATCHES THE CLOWN"

"Patches" was born in 1979 in Bismarck, ND.  

Ruth G Robertson-Kubberness started the "Holy Fools" Who were clowns for Christ, and "Patches" was the beginning. She started at McCabe Untied Methodist Church in Bismarck, ND. She went before 2 governors and had April 1st declared as "Holy Fools Day" It came from the this passage, 1 Corinthians 4:10 "We Are Fools For Christ." She has helped Senator Gary Dahl with his campaign and clowned in several parades.

She is a giving, kind, loving women with so much love to give to others.

She has a heart of gold and has passed her love of God to all three of us children. I dedicate my blog today to my mom. Life would be so sad without her. She has enough love for every person she meets. She also works at Red Cross and is very involved in her church. She currently lives in Peru, IL.

Patches is the one bottom right corner

I am so amazed at my mom and all she has accomplished. She just recently turned 79 years old and is still clowning. Mom you are truly a beautiful Lady inside and out and I am so blessed to call you my Momma!!!!

Happy Mother's Day!
