Pink Spa Pretties, Love is...,Blue Monday

Welcome to my very late PINK SATURDAY! I want to thank Beverly for her kind heart and the fact that she works so hard and tirelessly each week to bring it all together for a bountiful pink weekend.
My son-in-law Roger drew my name for our Secret Santa this Christmas. Here is part of my gift a pretty Olay bath care set. This is a terrific home style spa and I could use it after the long difficult time we had at our office. It is good to get back on our feet and get into the new year with a clean slate!
Join Marydon and me for Love is...This is a very special one for me! My oldest sister was indeed an army bride! I was just a little kid when she married but she was a happy soul! We lost her twelve years ago February 2001. I miss her today and always.
This was her wedding. In those days the wedding photos were taken at the Mineral Palace Park in my hometown. They had such a lovely venue to set up wedding photos. My older brother is on the left (second on your left) and my older sister is the flower girl on your far left! I was too tiny to participate!
Blue skies following the road to Gunnison, Colorado. Hannah's honey Markus will graduate from the university up there May 11th. We will hopefully travel that road in the crisp clear Spring weather. May is going to be a busy month! My Sweets and I will celebrate twenty nine years of marriage May3rd. Markus graduates May 11th. We pick Nick up at college May 18th and Rebekah graduates from the university here in Denver May 19th! Whew! I hope you will join Sally and all the blues for Blue Monday tomorrow.

Thanks for all the prayers for my brother-in-law John. He was admitted to the Veteran's Hospital here in Denver last night. They finally found a team of doctors who found out what he needed to start healing. Since he was not in the military during an active war he has no in patient benefits. Due to his condition they were able to admit him! Praise God!

Matthew 11:28-29 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Hi Anne, Your secret Santa gifts are awesome. Your SIL made a great choice. I love Olay products.

I loved the wedding picture so much. How sad to lose a sister Anne.

I am praying still for John. I hope there can be healing soon.

Have a happy Pink Saturday.
