Wendy’s Window– Chaos Everywhere!
September 17, 2020
Now we have fires to deal with! Who would have every thought we would experience so much chaos in one year? In January we learned about the death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and the rest of the passengers on the small private plane. Our hearts were full of sorrow in such disbelief. In February, we publicly experienced another Black man killed in cold blood by the name of Ahmaud Arbery. March was terrifying as we were officially introduced to COVID-19, the pandemic we all have been living with for months now, and an innocent woman by the name of Breonna Taylor was murdered in her own bed by police officers.  ... read more »

Wendy’s Window- ‘We Have Only Just Begun’
September 3, 2020
The Democratic and Republican Conventions have always been a sight to behold. Most of us wait in anticipation over all the fanfare and excitement that happens when they occur.  Every four years, leaders and party supporters come together to rally around their chosen candidate and to help the voters get to know a little more about the candidates and their families. The pandemic has made all of us adjust to a new way of doing things and this even includes political conventions.  Everything has gone virtual.   Or at least we are told that is how things should be; but there will always be those that do not follow the rules. ... read more »

Wendy’s Window: Do You Need a Hug?
August 27, 2020
Everyone could use a hug from time to time.  Physical contact is good for the soul and can often heal where medicine fails. Hugging someone or providing a tender touch can be both spiritual and medicinal. COVID-19 has taken that gift away from us.  We are living in days where physical touch with someone outside of the people we live with is discouraged. However, there are new ways to hug people and help fulfil a need and possibly heal hurts.  With food disparities and struggling restaurants doing their best to keep their doors open, there is a group that has started the “Food Hug” Program in Pasadena to recognize frontline heroes with a comforting meal by supporting minority-owned restaurants. ... read more »
WENDYS WINDOW: It’s Hot, You’re Tired, But Stay the Course
August 13, 2020
Summer is just about over and many of us are feeling hot, tired, and wondering what’s next?  Where did summer go?  Fun in the sun, traveling, and enjoying a nice vacation with family and loved ones didn’t happen the way many of us are used to and we are frustrated. We usually look at this time of year as a time to relax and refresh ourselves to prepare for Fall and finishing out the year strong.  The school year will begin soon, and students and parents alike have no idea what that will even look like. Businesses are still contemplating if employees should work remotely from home, and most of us have no idea what this “new normal” is really supposed to look like. But no matter what, I want to encourage all of us to not give up or give in, but let us remain steady and stay the course.   ... read more »

WENDY’S WINDOW: Dreams Really Can Come True – Part 2
July 30, 2020
Throughout the course of my life I have shared a lot about my ups and downs, with the hope that something I share could help someone along their journey.  When you open yourself up in such a public way, you never know how you will be perceived or received.   Last week in my article I shared about my journey of love and how after two decades I was blessed to marry the love of my life.  Due to miles, marriages, and mistakes, becoming Ron’s wife was a dream that I thought would never come true. Especially as life continued to last and death passed, and I was not getting any younger.  In part two of my story I want to encourage everyone to think about a specific dream you may have given up on.  Pick it back up, dust it off and start believing in what is possible. No matter what your age or how much time has passed. ... read more »
Wendy’s Window: Culturally Competent in a Time of Controversy
July 16, 2020
Watching little children play is such a joy.  I have two beautiful little grandchildren and the smiles and laughter that so innocently flow from their faces brings me such happiness.  Children have an innocence about them; it makes one wonder, what makes that end? ... read more »
WENDY’S WINDOW: We Should Aim to Inspire Before We Retire or Expire
July 9, 2020
When you think about the people who have played the biggest role in your life or who have inspired you the most who would they be?  Is it a famous actor or athlete?  Is it someone you idealized from afar, but you did not really know them or have a relationship with them? ... read more »

June 25, 2020
The fabric of racism runs deep across the globe. Just this past week I read an article about a British company that offered an apology for their part in participating in the slave trade going back over 300 years. ... read more »
