Squeezing in another PINK Saturday during the packing...

Welcome to another PINK Saturday hosted by Beverly over at http://www.howsweetthesound.typepad.com/
  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!

Hi Robyn:

Thank-you for your Miracle Makeover post! And when you are tired too.... means a lot!

I always think things like a hummingbird from nowhere is a sign or messenger from God! I think it is a great gift... that you saw him. Miracles abound.

Blessings...and you get Design Angel wings!

Love the shot of the hummingbird. They are such fun to watch.

Whidbey Woman said...

Oh, Moving is such a chore! We've been in our new place over 3 months and still don't have all the boxes unpacked... but we're almost there!!!!
I pray your son stays safe and has a joyous reunion with all of you.

Charlotte said...

Moving is such a stressful thing to do. I'm glad you took the break and was encouraged by the hummingbird. We have some around our house and I always enjoy watching them. I know you are eagerly awaiting the return of your son. God bless him for serving our country. God bless you for raising a son who chose to do it. I hope you will share with us again on Spiritual Sundays in the future.
Blessings,
Charlotte
