beyond blessed

The H.O.W. dinner (Helping One Woman...At A Time) was amazing. On Tuesday, April 20th I walked into Five Restaurant to learn that over 120 women had made reservations for the dinner. Of course my mom and I teared up immediately. I'd estimate that about 1/4 of the ladies were friends and family of mine - mom, 2 mother-in-laws, 1 future sister-in-law, my "besties," and many amazing friends, most from River Bluff. I cannot describe fully just how special I felt! So loved, so supported, so encouraged. I got to speak to the group briefly, which gave me the opportunity to thank those that were there for the many things they've done to support me and my family these past six months. Of course we feel like there's really no way to truly thank everyone enough for all that's been done for us - but we really are so very grateful. Back to the dinner...delicious meal out at a restaurant (something I thought would never happen again just a little while back), time with amazing, special people - it was a wonderful evening I'll never forget. At the end of the evening H.O.W. presented me with a monetary gift, which was a huge blessing as well. It was gift to go toward whatever I choose - which for us is our U.C. Davis hospital bill. God is so good to us! His timing is perfect! He has used so many people in a variety of ways to make me feel blessing upon blessing...I could go on and on...


The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
His mercies never come to an end.
They are new every morning...
Great is thy faithfulness, oh Lord!

Please pray:
  • Blessings upon H.O.W. as they have entered their 3rd year
  • For my back - pain meds. have been lowered again, so my pain is up
  • For my right wrist - new injury that happened when I fell


  1. YAY! What a fun night! So blessed to be a part of it!

  2. That is so awesome! "And God will provide all our needs according to the grace that is in Christ Jesus".
    What a great experience to be surrounded by family and friends and know that you are loved.
