Surrounded

This past weekend I was surrounded by the loving, the motivated and the crazy. I reveled in learning and making connections at the ACFW conference every waking moment. A glimpse of heaven.

~~~

I was so grateful to be surrounded by…


women with the the same taste as me and the same vision for the industry



women who love to laugh like I do




stellar literary agents




women of like mind




peeps encouraging me to get my dance on in the hotel room

(yes folks, I got to dance!)

~



women who have been through what I've been through

~

wise and uplifting women



new friends

Praise God for a time like that. Praise God.

*If I took a photo w/ you and you’re not posted here, no worries. There’s always Facebook and I’ll be slapping some up there within the next few days.

**And if you weren't able to make it but would have loved to have been there, you can count on the fact I would have loved for you to have made it too. There's always next year!

  18. Wendy, you are one of the most joyful women I've met in a LONG time. That picture of you and Sara HAS to be the best, huh?

    Like your moves, too.

    Hey, would love your prayers as I take a blogging hiatus. Yep, two deadlines loom, especially that unwritten book. Good thing I have Sara to crit behind me.

    Anyway, I'll still be blogging at my place, at least for now, but won't get to pop in often.

    Know that my prayers will be with you.

    And after 11/15, LOOK OUT! I wanna read your stuff!!!

  24. Wendy, you have some of the best pics I've seen yet. And I still can't believe we never ran into each other. I so wish we had. Praise God indeed, though, for all the friends we were both surrounded with for those days. And looking at your pics I see we share many. Blessings!

My husband and I love to joke how in the 80s people didn’t care near as much what they looked like as they do today. Just watch 80s TV. H...
