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.
Norma, 48, is the Vice President of the local Community Bank. She is very pleased with Alyssa's performance as a new hire, and is thinking about promoting her senior teller in a few months.
After having lunch with Denise, Alyssa realized how alone she felt with a baby on the way and a mother-in-law that wasn't the most supportive. She mentioned it to Norma who said that maybe the Women's Circle could do something to help her feel more included.
Norma called Fran, the Circle President, and proposed that the Circle hold a baby shower for Denise. Fran loved the idea and asked Belle to assist her and Norma in coordinating the shower. Belle was tasked with calling Norma's mother-in-law, Opal to let her know what they were going to do.
