Pink Saturdays Pink eyes For Sure

Happy Pink Saturdays to all my loving blogger friends! Many thanks to Bev at How Sweet The Sound for hosting our PINK Saturdays. Be sure to check out her blog for all the links to our lovely PINK blogging ladies! Read all the way thorugh for my poem of the day... A tribute to being spared this past week.

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!


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
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?

Poems My Way Valrie 07/09/2010


  1. Hi Valerie! Thank you soooo much for mentioning me in your pink post! I'm so honored and you made my day!
    What a beautiful poem and may God bless and protect your son!
    I'm a follower, was since last week! :D

  2. Oh Valrie, I am so glad you are ok. I hope you are doing much better and the dreaded kidney stone has passed by now. I have experienced that issue before. I pray never again. The pics were wonderful and they all looked so happy. You sent him off grand. I'll be praying for you and for his safety. (((valrie))) <Hug for you from me,

  3. I am sorry about your accident. It must be so hard to say goodbye to your son. Praying that he is safe and back home soon.

  4. Hi Valrie,

    What a difficult time you are having. My heart goes out to you. Life can be difficult at times. Mine is pretty miserable too at the moment. Your son sounds adorable. The cake was awsome. I'm happy that you did not get hurt too badly in the accident. I'm a new follower and I know that in a few months life will be normal again. BTW love the poem.


  5. Happy Pink Saturday!
    I am your new follower...
    enjoy the fun!
    lovely here.

  6. Hi Valrie! Oh, my goodness - what a time you've had! I'm so glad you escaped your terrible car crash and I hope that kidney stone will pass quickly and painlessly! What beautiful children you have and I do pray for your dear son as he leaves. Thank you so much for popping in to see me today. Take care of yourself.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  7. Oh my Valrie, you are one tough cookie to go through all this and still be able to joke. Here's to a quick recovery for you and thank your son from our family. His efforts will never be forgotten by us.
    Licks & Wags, Niki

  8. Oh, you poor dear. You have really had a lot of bumps in the road lately. Thank God you were not hurt in the car accident.

    Yikes to the kidney stone. I hope it painlessly goes away. Do your caregivers have a plan?

    The party must have been wonderful. Your family is gorgeous. I have a son, too, and I can imagine how difficult this must be for you. I would be crazy worried.

    Happy Pink Saturday, dear Valrie.

  9. Valerie, so glad you are okay. What a week. My heart is with you and your son. Take care of yourself.
