a special pink saturday

"Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul.
And sings the tune without words,
And never stops at all."
-- Emily Dickenson

This Pink Saturday our hostess Beverly of How Sweet the Sound is joining Kelee at the Katillac Shack for a Miracle Blog Party. The party is to celebrate Collette Gaultier's recovery. Collette is a cancer patient whose story was featured in Guideposts Magazine. In two and half days Collette's very bleak rental house bedroom was transformed into a comforting haven that became a sanctuary during her journey through chemotherapy.

The Katillac Shack is showing the video of the room makeover reveal. In addition you can leave a comment on that post which counts as a $1 donation from Design Gives Back to help the next person in need. You have a chance to donate up to $5 just by leaving a comment at a few different places. There are also some great prizes being given away. Information is all at the Kattilac Shack. Please go over there, watch the video and read Collette's inspiring story.

Happy Pink Saturday

Today I'm grateful for...

The gift of gratitude. It's so easy to take the little things for granted.
Stop every now and then and appreciate what you have in your life today.

Happy Miracle Weekend Anna Sweetie...
Thank you so much for posting Colette's inspirational story. She is such a dear friend of mine and I am so thrilled to be one of the blogs that if you leave a comment you earn a $1.00 towards the next miracle makeover. Please stop by as I would so love to share my miracle story too. It is all about Colette's journey and the photos will so touch your heart. Kelee shared the room makeover photos, and I shared Colette's journey photos.

SO bring a tissue and stop by. Many hugs, Sherry@ Country Wings in Phoenix

Gratitude is such a lovely thing to be thankful for in this world where people are so self-centered. This blogging sisterhood has certainly shown that it does exist. Happy Miracle Weekend.

Happy Pink Saturday, Anna. Thank you for making Pink Saturday special, and for taking part in this day of celebration and thanks.

There truly are miracles going on all around us every day. We just have to open our hearts in acceptance.

Thank you for sharing these words of inspiration with us.

I'm still hoping to reach my goal of 200 comments by midnight tonight.
