Squeezing in another PINK Saturday during the packing...

Welcome to another PINK Saturday hosted by Beverly over at
  This is a special Pink saturday as today is the day we all share a blessing in our life,and help to raise money for another Miracle Makeover. Please stop by Beverly's site and leave a message as each one she receives raises money for another Miracle Makeover, and while you are there you can see Charlie's Miracle Makeover video that was possible by all the money raised last year.
 I really needed the break from packing, by the way the final move date is the 18th.
I was outside next door playing with my neighbors 10 week old miniature workshire terrier - Wolfie, he is so adorable - puts a smile on my face everytime I see him.  Then in front of me I see a hummingbird - which we rarely see around our houses!  It stayed in the area for several minutes and it was a joy to view, so I wanted to share this lovely photo of a hummingbird I found online to remember my luck of spotting one this afternoon...
Although I am tired and stressed from all the packing and moving that I have been doing I am also blessed knowing that my family are all healthy and for the most part together - our oldest son is still in Iraq but due home in another month. Through good times and tough times we have been there for one another and  watch with love and pride as our children and nieces and nephews are becoming strong and caring adults.  Looking at that hummingbird reminds me that they are taking flight with their own lives and that makes me feel very blessed.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Pink weekend!

Unfortunately I am busy packing for our move in less than two weeks, but since I missed the last Pink Saturday, wanted to get a little something up for this one - besides, I needed a break!
 This lovely pink depression glass pitcher was found at an antique sale on our 5th wedding anniversary - last month we celebrated our 21st.  It is difficult to appreciate the delicate pink in it from this photo.  I love when the sun shines through it; I use it more for floral display than actual 'pitcher duty' since the pour spout is so tiny it is very slow pouring and usually messy.

A gift from my oldest daughter, she found it while up visiting OSU - she moves up there next month to start her Junior year.  Hopefully I will find a couple of hours this weekend to enjoy it and relax.

Please stop by Beverly's  at she is the wonderful hostess of Pink Saturday.
