Pink Saturday ~ Hope & Beauty

 We Will Not Forget .....  9/11


Hope..........We only have to open our eyes to see the beauty all around us.  I was blessed with a Butterfly Bush that sprouted as a volunteer right outside my studio door.  I captured two gorgeous butterflies on one bloom yesterday.  When you see this how can you not believe? 


For more happy pink please visit Beverly at "How Sweet the Sound" today.  :)

Shame on us if we do ever allow ourselves to forget. I know it forever changed my way of thinking.
There is something spritual about the "volunteer" butterfly bush coming up as it did....perhaps a whisper from God that He will take care of us just as he does the butterflies.

If anyone, anywhere cannot remember 9/11, they can't be human.
I always think butterflies are a sign from above.

I love that a butterfly bush volunteered to live with you :))

Sadly, the impact of that day seems to be lost on some of those in political power. My family will not forget.

I also love that Butterfly bush, how precious. We will never forget 9/11, it is etched in our memories for all times. I still say a prayer for those lost and their loved ones that were left behind to carry on.

Thank you for the post- I hope that this country never forgets...never falters...never gives over to Ungodly acts of violence. I pray for those that are gone and those that still suffer the unending consequences of that day~ Diana

It is the simple things in life, their simple beauty, that encourage us, inspire us and makes us smile. Thank you for sharing today.

A very nice post to honor those that we lost on this terrible day. I love your butterfly bush. I wish I had one. I love the pretty butterflies, but never see any.

Good Morning Lynn Sweetie...
What a beautiful share. I love your bike with the flowers in remembrance and the American flags that stand for our freedon.

How beautiful that a volunteer butterfly bush came to live with you, and along with it came a few friends. I love to see butterflies. A most beautiful share sweetie.

Hope you have a gorgeous Saturday. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Just getting around for P.S. Hope you had a great day.

Oh Lynn Sweetie...
I can't wait to see the glorious photos that you find along your trail. How fun this will be. It is always so nice to drive, because you don't have a time schedule and you can pull off all along the way. Oh I so love driving.

Don't forget to look for beautiful blankets along the way. I am still using mine. It just hasn't cooled off. Still in the 100's here. I am beginning to think it will never get any cooler.

Have a wonderful trip. I can't wait to see what all you see along the way.

Have a splendid trip. I will see you soon. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

This is such a lovely post, Lynn.

I must believe - and I must have faith and hope. How else would we carry forward?

Happy Pink Saturday.
