Pink Saturday

Always look forward to Pink Saturday with Beverly and friends. The best place to see some outstanding pinks is at



Going to share something very special to me this week, and it is pink. Sometime ago, Coloradolady had a feature on her blog for seniors called "One Fine Blessing". You submitted the name and address of seniors celebrating a birthday, send a card and enclose a dollar if you liked.  I participated in this cause. It is not been active for awhile now.

One of the sweet ladies remembered me sending her a card and that we were the same age by a few months. One day this week, I received the following card from her with a nice message and a dollar.  After all this time, she never forgot me. It really touched me.

How nice --first of all--that you took time to write that lady.. AND--how nice that she wrote you back. That meant as much to her I'm sure as it did you... God Bless You, Lavoice.

A High-heel cake server, huh??? Mercy Me!!!

My mother always said that the good you do comes back double and triple...guess it's true about birthday cards too! Isn't that just the happiest surprise ever? What are you going to buy with the dollar? I'd buy two more cards at the dollar store! Have a Pink Week!

This is soooo sweet, LV.
The main reason for blogging, for me, is the blessing of getting to know such lovely people. Blogging is such a wonderful way for us to be in touch with people that really seem to care. Being right in the middle of such fine folks makes ME a better person.
Happiest Pink Sat. and I hope your Sunday is blessed and special.
Love, bj

A very interesting post. It's wonderful that she never forgot you. That's a fine idea too.

I don't think I like my cake served in a high heel shoe. LOL

I wish someone who pick the Senior Blessing meme up again! I know Suzanne is so busy too! But my phamily enjoyed sending cards and I filled my birthday box with many,many cards. If you know anyone needing a birthday greeting let me know. I will pass it on and send one on my way.
That sweet person knew you were a super special gal!
Need to get to work. Prayers are always welcomed for that place and I will visit more tonight! Hugs Anne

LV that is so sweet and touching! I would have been in awe that she remembered as well. You just never know how your life is going to touch someone else's.

Neat post!
