What a fun job we have working with our community! This week we recovered from the Women’s Expo, reflecting on the many ways we were blessed by this event.
Watching vendors working hours to prepare their booths and displays, seeing love and compassion in those who worked with our makeover gals, being truly inspired by these two women’s stories of survival and love for this community, being thankful for people who step-up and say “sure, I can help!” (this is a shout-out to our phenomenal expo committee….we couldn't do it without you!), seeing super-happy faces of our door prize winners, feeling grateful for the generosity of our many sponsors who, without you, this event wouldn't be possible. But best of all, looking over the crowd and seeing women from age 1 to age 87 thoroughly enjoying themselves shopping, learning things at our breakout sessions, enjoying a style show, and being blessed by Bep’s message. That is what this event is all about.
A heart felt thank you to each of you who attended or helped in some way to make this event possible. We are humbly grateful.
