Today is a very special Pink Saturday Blessings Day
in honor of Charlie's Miracle Makeover
I was so blessed recently to have witnessed some very special events......all in one day. Maybe I am just a maudlin or overly pensive type person or maybe it's my old (er) age but I believe these simple things in life are truly life's unexpected blessings. Just small minute happenings but carrying so much weight.
Scroll back up to the top of my blog and note that little flower painted home made bird house. Well...that sweet little house is mounted on a tree just maybe 15 feet or so from my outside project work table. And this is what I witnessed so late in the season the other day. I had no idea she had built in the box and this photo session lasted maybe a minute or two. The next day that family was gone. Isn't she absolutely gorgeous? Just look at that beautiful blue. I felt so blessed to witness Momma bluebird feeding her chirping babies.
Shortly after that, a small storm approached, hit and was gone. And this appeared over the lake. There are some who have never seen a rainbow and I had one in my backyard. Yes, small beautiful blessings are everywhere....full of hope.
And 42 years ago this same day, two very young people got married. Bobby G. and me. What a blessing to have and to hold for all this time. (Now a true blessing would be to still be able to wear a short dress like that again.... :)
