Hello from the Mountains,
I am so glad to be able to join all of you for Pink Saturday again. We were just to busy the last couple of weeks for me to spend much time on the puter. We are starting into our fall season and the day are cooler and shorter. I so look forward to the change in our mountains and will share some wonderful pictures with you as they change.
I have two little pink stories to share with you today that mean so much to me. Along with everything else I do I have a home baking business, Baking home made cake, pies and other items for customers in our community. Well for some time I have been debating whether to buy a new mixer or not. A couple weeks ago I got a scratch off card in the mail for Kohls store and to my surprise it was for 30% off. I usually just get the 15% one, so Immediately it gave me the excuse to buy a new mixer. When I went into the store and saw the pink mixer and read about the link it has with breast cancer research I knew it was the one I would buy.
Just this past year I lost a wonderful first cousin to breast cancer and she was just 60 years. She had first found out about her cancer in the year 2000. She went through all the treatments and was cancer free for seven years. She decided to take a family trip to the beach last year in May with her children and grand children, There first, all together in many years. She came through West Virginia to visit us on her way back home to Ohio, She was having some trouble with her back, After returning home she found out her cancer had returned and was in the spine. From there is traveled fast and she passed away a couple days before her birthday in December. Sharon was a wonderful Mother, Wife and Friend. My tribute is to her and she is missed very much by so many of us. My pink Kitchen Aid Mixer is in her honor.
My next tribute is to my wonderful and beautiful Granddaughter Miranda, We all have refrigerator art and mine is one of my most treasured items. The little pink sign hanging on my fridge was a gift from Miranda just last year and that means so much as she gave it to me after she became a teenager, ( we all know how they change as teenagers) She is the joy in our life. She has been raised by her Mom and Darrell and I have helped in every way. She has spent every summer and holidays with us. She is more like a daughter than a granddaughter. We are so proud of the young lady she is becoming. Loves School, and has such a wonderful heart. The little picture above the sign is her at about 4 years old and she was helping my sister to make homemade bread. She loved playing in the dough. She had her 15th birthday just a few days ago. We now have a new Granddaughter, Madison, who belongs to our son. She will be 3 this month. We look forward to watching her grow up as we have done with Miranda, We will be in Tennessee next week to visit them both and to make more great memories.
Take a little time to hugs your children or grandchildren today or make a new memory.
