In the Pink

I came home from the trip to Auburn, NY to all the Azaleas in bloom in the neighborhood (Garden City, SC).  Just in time for PINK SATURDAY sponsored by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.  Be sure to stop over and see all the the Pink Saturday offerings on her site, such fun to see what others come up with in pink.

They are all so beautiful.  I also have white, coral and red Azaleas and some are miniature.
These are Shamrock Blossoms
These are the miniature ones.  
The trip to New York State for the Memorial Service for Bill went very well.  The service was beautiful and there was much participation from family members in Scripture reading, tributes and I read the poem I wrote without crying.  God is so good.  The minister and all of the ladies at our hometown church were wonderful and put on a luncheon following the morning service for all who attended.  It gave friends and family there who could not make it to the service here, closure.  It was good for all of us.  I was happy to be back at home and some normalcy back to my life.  I cut the grass today.  Had my doc appt. yesterday and he thinks I am doing well and I have not lost more weight so that is good.  Missing my honey very much but comforted that the thumbprint pendant that I ordered had come in and I am now wearing it!!  That was a nice surprise as I was told it would take 6 weeks but it came in 2!
I need to buy a chain but I am using one I had for now.  It is Sterling silver and so beautiful.  It is dimensional so that I can actually feel the swirl of the print :)  I am so glad I discovered the booklet that told about these wonderful mementos at the Funeral Home.  If anyone is interested, the site is: www.meadowhillco.com 

Thank you all for stopping by today and do come again soon.  Have a most wonderful day!  Today is my Birthday and I think I definitely qualify for "Vintage" now-ha!

 My heart to yours....

Happy Birthday sweet Kerrie, I cannot begin to imagine your loss. I am so happy past friends and church family's honored your family. I'm sure it brings you comfort. Spring is the time of renewal. May God renew and refresh your body, your soul, and keep your spirit in HIS hands until you and Hubby meet again.
