A to Z Theme - Circle of Hope:
A serial story (written in six-sentence segments) involving twenty-six women living in the small Midwest town of Cottonwood Creek, their lives connected by the Women's Circle of the town's protestant church, Hope Christian Fellowship, to which they all belong.
Grace, 45, divorced mother of a daughter in college, did her best to get along with everyone at Hope Christian, and Erica viewed her as a friend, even though at times Erica's behavior exasperated Grace.
She wasn't the least big surprised when Erica came barging through her front door without knocking; she'd been anticipating her visit after hearing rumors of a shake up at the church.
"You won't believe what they've done!" Erica sputtered, red faced and fuming.
"Sit down, and let me get you some iced tea," Grace said quietly, hoping to give Erica a moment to calm down.
"Fran called me to tell me that they want me to be in charge of the Christmas Choir Concert this year instead of the Children's Christmas Program! She said they wanted to involve some of the new Women's Circle members so she asked Alyssa to be in charge of the children's program; that's a fine thank you for all the work I've put into it for the past eight years!"
