Today I am featuring Amy please visit her awesome blog! Vintage Porcelain Art.t She is new to Pink Saturdays, but not to PINK. Wonderful lost art porcelain creations, especially has VINTAGE tea cups in lovely pinks and aquas. Her July 5th post was breathtaking. Be sure to stop by and mention Valrie sent you by for a blogger visit!
Not much pink today but my pink and teary eyes. What a week it has been. BBQ SEND OFF FOR MY MARINE JOEY. Crashed my car and it is totalled. Hospitalized for 5 days after escaping unscathed from a crash that should have killed by a kidney stone that will not pass. Sent home to deal with it on my own. Delayed start to a new job, and car shopping. All the rest is immaterial considering 1) I am alive 2) I lose my son to a ueeless next 7 months in a war that will never be won or recognized in my opinion.3) Where this is prayer there is hope, where there is hope there is a way, and I will find a way to regroup and rebuild once again.
Here are the lovely pictures of my celebration and send off for my son this past week. Some in MD with my daughter jenni whom I flew up from Waco TX to see her brother before he deploys tomorrow to Afghanistan. Sorry, I am crying right now, I cannot bear to let him go but know I must. Please pray for our family...
Some are of the awesome fun we had at his BBQ here in NY the day after my critical car accident and the same day I was readmitted to the hospital for 5 days to try and pass a kidney stone (I did not and am home battling here as i type this post).
Joey and sis Jenni the loves of my life and reason to be!
Hmmm partying I see...
Our favorite ice cream place in MD where the kids grew up. Paddle ice cream made to order, yummy!
I so love these two kids, Jenni born in 'June 84, Joey Mrch '87.
This is my clan of 5. I raised all of them. The twins and Joey now 23, Lauren in aqua 21, and my first born Jenni 26, the leader of the pack! I love them all.
Can you believe Grandma gave the Marine this deadly weapon?
This is the awesome cake I made with the help of my sis. It was a total Jarhead cake, replete with xtreme action figure soldiers on skateboards... Joey's favorite past time!
He is my GI JOE! Please bless him and pray for his safe return.
I plan on eating a lot of ice cream today to cool off....
I will be on the computer all day surfing you PINK Ladies.... and typing my doctoral papers, filling my orders for my PINK BUBBLE... email me! HERE
If you want to help me get back on my feet, please order a PINK lipstick or ask me how to do an email PINK party and earn free PINKS!
This PINK butterfly is free to fly, so fly away, high, up and away, bye bye and happy PS!
BIG PINK HUGS!!!!!!
Pink and Spared to Live
Blessed are those who believe
And trust in our Lord...
He is good he is kind
No matter the problems we face
Or how we fall from His grace
The wrongs we do
Nor how we attempt to right them
Will ensure our entrance into His kingdom
WE HAVE BUT TO ASK
and all shall enter within...
I asked Jesus to tke the wheel of my car
As I saw the steel cables near my throat
And I know I live today because of His love for me...
Thank you Jesus for protecting me
For believing I was worthy to be spared.
I will endeavor to live up to your hopes of my life.
A humble servant unto the Lord.
A Pink Butterly in flight from harm and despair
Dare I dream once more?
