~My "Pink Saturday" is for Deena~


This is my first "Pink Saturday"
...I thought I'd join in on the fun.
Thanks Beverly for hosing this fun weekly event!
Today I dedicate my "Pink Saturday" to my friend Deena who's fighting cancer..
the above banner is one I made a while back for her.
This sweet Gal has had a very hard time of it
through all her surgeries, chemo, radiation,
she's put on a smile and has shown us all such courage and love!
So too all who see this post PLEASE
stop by Deena's blog "Can I be Pretty in Pink?" to say hello
& also say a pray for this wonderful Gal..
Yes Deena you are pretty in Pink and we love you!

Mary dear - I'm SO glad you have joined us at Beverly's Pink Saturday - it's so much fun and there are now such a lot of great participants each week. You'll make a lot of new friends from this list and I'm certain these gals all need new banners, ha! ha!

Beverly is a sweetheart and lives near me - we've yet to meet in person though because she has such a hectic job and little free time. I have however met her wonderful friend Jeanne (at Backyard Neighbor at the top of the P.Sat. list) when she's come down from the NC mountains a couple of times, and we've had great visits to SuzAnna's Antiques (Jeanne has been in the antiques business for many years) and of course enjoying lunch with some other local blog friends - Deborah at Pictures, Pots & Pens and Vanessa at Vanilla Lavender who's home in Brazil visiting her family for a month.

Thanks again for bringing our lovely Deena into the spotlight on your post as although her health is still so precarious, at least more gals will learn about her valiant battle and hopefully pray for her daily.

On future Sats. I know you will have fabulous to pink to share because it's all around your beautiful cottage! Peronally I'm almost running out because I've been doing it for months, BUT I usually end up digging up something to share!

Stay warm this weekend - much love as always.

Mary
Your heart is full of kindness. As one soul touches another you have created a flow of energy that will reach your friend Deena. I did send Deena a blog after I read your blog asking for prayer. PRAYERS NEVER GO UNANSWERED. NEVER EVER! Our Lord hears us always.
Many blessings to you
Marie

Dear Mary,

I am so glad you posted about Deena as she was one of my favorites in the past. It may take me a while to catch up on the past favorites but it helps when bloggers like you link to them!

Praying for Deena that she will be cured soon!

Loving my new banner sweet Mary!♥

Sorry I'm so late in posting my comments...work has taken me on a few travels as of late...but now that I am able, I certainly wanted to "visit".

Our cottage, The Painted Nest is not abundant in PINK (gasp, I know, LOL) nonetheless the fun continues, as I participated in this past Sat. Pink Posting... :)

Happy to be here and support this cause...what a treasure of a friend she has in you!

Lana said...

Mary, thanks so much for your comment on my blog. I was tickled pink when you said your sister's name is Lana! Please tell her she's my new best friend. LOL There aren't too many of us, you know. I'd love to "meet" her. Maybe she'll stop by my blog for a cup of virtual tea.

All the best, the other Lana
