Tonight as I watched the people filing into the Ballroom at the Marriott Hotel for this edition of Helping One Woman, I realized one of the reasons this organization and this event are growing so much: The HOW Community keeps expanding, as we Honor One Woman, who returns the next month and brings friends with her, and THEY bring other friends and other friends.
Amongst the greetings and hugs and exclamations of joy were layer after layer of friendships. Some old and now renewed, some everlasting, some brand new. All were filled with hope and expectation. As this month’s honoree, Sara Becerra, drew the name to choose our honoree for January, many eyes filled with tears of happiness, for she has been attending our dinners for many months already. And Sara assured us that she, too, would be here in January to continue Helping One Woman.
My heart is full.
