Here's to a great PINK Saturday! and to my Friend...

I thought I would send you all some pink cone flowers from a walk in the Nature Preserve that I took with my friend Emmy this past Wednesday.
Emmy is a breast cancer survivor and when I think of all things pink, she always comes to mind! What an inspiration she is to me and to anyone that meets her. She actually believes that she was chosen to have cancer and that it was a blessing. Emmy has used her challenges with overcoming the disease to help others, some she knows and some she doesn't in their journey.
She even wrote a poem, or journal entry as I would call it describing how she feels. She shared it with me that day, and I left her home with a whole new outlook on life!
Today's contribution to Pink Saturday is in honor my friend, Emmy!
Blessings to you my dear!
Don't forget to check out Beverly and all the "pinkies" as I call them!

Really cold (50s) in upper Michigan today with a dark sky. I need all the pink I can get this morning. Thanks so much for helping lift my spirits!

Wishing you a weekend filled with sunshine and happiness.

To be able to see cancer as a blessing is something. Just by posting this, I can say that there really is no doubt everybody would admire her. he courage she must have and the right thinking. She must be a really wonderful lady.

thanks for commenting on my blog today. I found this picture on another blog where is was posted as a room that went way wrong...I however, thought it had some charm...I stood alone !!!! No, I don't love it, but I did not think it was as awful as they were making it out to be...just wanted to know what my readers thought. thanks
