View From ...... Well.....Opposite of Heaven!

Greetings Wendy's stalkers! I am coming to you live from the wonderful world of 116 degree heat, plenty of dirt, and as much brown scenery as one can handle. I figured it is only appropriate that I be a guest blogger since Wendy originates from the heavenly views of Pleasant Grove and I am residing in the complete opposite place of Buckeye, Arizona. However, you will not hear me complain in January.

Well, I have been contemplating all the great things I could use this opportunity to talk about. I finally came to the conclusion to post about Wendy. I know, novel concept for there to be a post about Wendy on Wendy's blog. But I know that Wendy will never say these things so I feel it is my responsibility to "out" her. So here goes.............

  • First and foremost, Wendy has some friggin' crazy in-laws. We are talking certifiable, a few fries short of a happy meal, destined for a rubber room, crazy!! No, seriously, nutso! I would use more descriptive language but I do not want to change the rating on Wendy's blog.
  • Wendy has, hands down, got to be the most giving person I know. I am sure those reading this are completely aware of her kindness. When she was engaged to my brother (yes, I am one of the crazy in-laws), she volunteered to help me sand all the walls in my room to get them ready to paint. It was a lot of work and not at all fun. I could not believe she wanted to help me. I was 12 at the time and remember what an impact this act made on me. It seriously changed me forever and taught me the joy of service both in giving and receiving. I am certain she would do anything for anyone and I know she has done so much for me. I am sure more than she even realizes.
  • Wendy is h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s!! So picture this, I was at the outlet shops in Park City where a group of us were gathering to do some early Christmas shopping. I was sitting in my car waiting for the rest to arrive, when I notice a van in the roundabout nearby. I realized it was Wendy and then quickly realized she was staying in the roundabout. She just kept going around and around. There were several other cars waiting to enter the roundabout but could not figure what the lady in the "purple" mini-van was doing. The look on their faces was priceless. I watched her go around that thing a good 10 times and was laughing so hard I am pretty sure I wet myself. It was classic!
  • I have never met anyone with as much talent as Wendy. Yup, it is official, that girl is packed to the gills with talent. When she was being made, someone dumped a whole bucket of talent in her. She is truly an amazing creature!
  • She has a fantastic mom. I LOVE Wendy's mom, she is great! I can see how Wendy turned out so amazing, she has an amazing mom!
  • Wendy is patient. I am sure no one considers themselves patient but I have witnessed Wendy's patience on several occasions and can attest to its truthfulness. She is patient! If anyone can teach a 17 year-old know-it-all kid how to toll paint and never once lose her cool, she is patient. She should have hit me over the head with a tire iron and put us all out of our misery but instead, she just kept inviting me back for more. I am seriously embarrassed at some of the things I considered cute and works of art but Wendy was so kind. She never once made me feel bad for the junk I was making. Thanks Wend!
  • I personally believe our children reflect on who we are so that should tell you just how truly spectacular Wendy is just based on her kids. I don't get to see them nearly as much as I would like but they are such great kids. Plus they are so creative. Anyone who can turn a sports bra into three-legged underwear is destined for greatness.
  • Did I mention how truly psychotic her in-law's are. Again, another testament to Wendy's true amazingness that she even maintains the same last name!

Wendy has been in my life since I was Josh's age and I could not have had a better role model, example, and friend as I have had with Wendy. I am truly a better person just for having her in my life. Wendy....you rock!

I think I have solidified the fact that I will not be asked back to guest blog. But if you want to check out my blog, all is welcome! http://www.thewrightplaceandthewrighttimes.blogspot.com/ I cannot guarantee a PG rating but I will do my best. Ha ha ha

I whole heartedly agree with your analysis of Wendy! She is awesome. I love her and am proud to call her my friend. And it sounds like you would be a fun friend too. Come hang out in PG anytime and you'll surely find me at the Gas 'n Sip with Wendy.

Heck ya Wendy Rocks!

Wendy was the first friend I ever made when I moved to P.G. and I have to say, I got the better end of the deal.

Tifany - you did a great job! I will be checking out your blog!
