One of my amazing friends (Molly, whom I job-shared with for 3 years) nominated me to be the H.O.W. "Woman of the Month" back in November when I was recuperating at my parents' house. H.O.W. is a local women's organization (stands for "Helping One Woman...At A Time"). In March, this group voted and I was chosen as the April H.O.W. "honoree." (Not sure if that's the correct word to use...) Tomorrow night - Tuesday, April 20th - is their 2nd Anniversary dinner, where I'll be "recognized." All ladies are invited to attend. It's at FIVE restaurant in Fresno at 6:00pm. To RSVP, ladies (or groups) can call FIVE restaurant and make a dinner reservation at 434-5553. The H.O.W. website is if you'd like more information about this wonderful organization. I am so excited for tomorrow night's dinner. It wasn't that long ago that I couldn't imagine even leaving the house, let alone going to a special dinner with friends and family! I'll let you all know how it goes, and post pictures later this week.

Love, Wendy

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

Please pray:
  • That God truly blesses the members of the H.O.W. organization in their upcoming 3rd year.
  • Many blessings upon my friend Molly, who nominated me. Also, please pray for her husband, who has had 3 surgeries for the same problem these past few months.
  • That I have strength to enjoy the evening, and that my back pain is subdued so I can sit at a dinner table comfortably.

zoo day

I decided to brave the zoo this morning, knowing full well it was a spring break day, and it actually didn't get too busy until we left. It was a great mama-son morning with the boys, as well as their buddy Brady and his mommy (Sarah - one of my besties for 16 years now). We had a wonderful morning, but I was beyond exhausted when we left. Of course it was worth it though! I'm trying to do things each week that build my endurance and that slowly get me back into the real world. I'm so thankful for my sweet boys and the pure joy they bring to my life every day.
Children are a gift from God, a blessing from above.
