All I knew was that I was looking for Booth 490!
Go to the right, then to the left and turn the corner again....
Way down the aisle, I could finally see the sign,
And there she was to greet us.
How wonderful to be able to partner with this wonderful gal,
Wendy, who owns Winks Gift Shop in Chilliwack.
She invited us to share our MGCC book signings in her wonderful booth,
at the West Coast Women's Show, one of BC's largest events, this past weekend.
And here is our dedicated, fearless, leader...putting the final touches to our day,
always willing to meet, greet and share the story with everyone.
Women, from all walks of life, interested in knowing how we met,
where we came from, how we got started and excited to hear about us
sharing our author royalties with an orphanage in Ukraine.
Ellen whipped down from Seattle to join the gang,
she is a real trooper in more than one way.
Thanks Ellen for always supporting us and making the extra effort.
One of the highlights was being invited and asked to share at the "Kitchen Theatre."
"Gathering Family for Breakfast"
Here we demonstrated waffles, custard, berry sauce and egg cups.
Chef Dez was the Host, and loved being surrounded by our group.
We all know that he sampled everything.
At the end of the day...he announced
that the MGCC Women had one of the best presentations,
and we executed it in timely fashion as we only had 30 minutes.
But ladies, let me tell you...
we also took time to observe and watch the Firemen cook,
as they made their own stunning presentation.
We smiled as they licked their fingers.
But they were having fun.
At the end of the day, nothing was more heart warming,
to see how many women's hearts were touched by the story,
that Winks proceeds, for the books were going to feed an orphange in Romania.
Wendy and Dave just came back from Romania blessing an entire village with food hampers.
Women would just grab a book and say,
"This just makes me want to continue to support your ministry."
At 9:00 pm, I looked at Wendy...and I knew we were at the end of the day.
Thanks to Wendy and her whole team.
Thank you Dave for treating us with royalty and generosity.
You are a great team to partner with and we'd do it all over again.
Now, grab your car and dash out to visit Winks.
I'm sure it will be a hit on your Christmas list.
