Giving Thanks

If the only prayer you ever say in your whole life is "thank you," that would suffice.
Meister Eckhart









Here we are in November, the month of "Thanks"!



Last year at this time, in honor of Thanksgiving



I started a new tradition for me,



and decided to post here on my blog



"30 Days of Giving Thanks"



I wanted to post a thank you each day, for the entire month.



I think I missed a few days,



but, I must say it made a difference in my life.



It was a way for me to remember that despite life's ups and downs,



there is always much to appreciate in our lives.....



I created a special button for this last year,



and if you would like to join me



in this special way to look at the good in our lives



please feel free to take the button for your use....



and pass it on!




DAY 1: So very thankful this day........

for all the special people who have stopped by

and said hello to me

on my blog this year....

May God Bless You!



HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!!


What a great day here~ we have rain~ yayyy!


For today's pink post, I decided to look up the meaning of the color pink


here it is according to:






Pink is the color of universal love.


Pink is a quiet color.


Lovers of beauty favor pink.


A pink carnation means "I will never forget you".



Pink Energy
Pink is a combination of red and white.


The quality of energy in pink is determined by how much red is present.


White is the potential for fullness, while red helps you to achieve that potential.


Pink combines these energies.


Shades of deep pink, such as magenta, are effective in neutralizing disorder and violence.


Some prisons use limited deep pink tones to diffuse aggressive behaviour.
Pink provides feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth and love, acceptance.



Put some pink in your life when you want:
calm feelings
to neutralize disorder
relaxation
acceptance, contentment




Pink gem stone properties
Pink gemstones can be used to promote love, self-worth, order and protection from violence or aggression.


Carry or place pink gemstones around your home or office to stimulate love and beauty.




Check out Emily's site to see some really yummy pink gemstones!
And, here is one of my favorite pink angels from my collection:





And, sharing a plate I painted, which I have "tweaked" a bit with a program called


Photoscape.... really fun program, and it was free!!




TTFN~ HAVE A SWEET PINK WEEKEND!
