I have seen Pink Saturday all over blogland and thought how fun this would be to get in on this...as I have so much Pink in my home...Now Beverly at http://http//howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ Has started this, please check out her blog for others that have joined in with today fun PINK stuff. And if you would like to be apart of this please let her know and she will add your name..
Many of you know by reading my profile, go ahead and read it I'll wait.. Ok I was married for 31 years. Wally my late husband who was really my best friend..we were truly soul mates..we ran a business together, raced cars together, flew our plane together,went antiquing together, worked at raising our family together ( he had 3 children and I had 3 children we were the Brady Bunch only without Alice helping in the kitchen) working at our church together, in other words we were always together...there was not one day in 31 years that this man did not make me laugh or make me feel loved...He was truly the love of my life.
Wally died of a heart attack right in front of me in May of 1999, at 2:10 a.m , I tried for 40 minutes to give him CPR while waiting for help...We live in the mountains and at that time we were not even living in our home...we were in the middle of doing an addition on the house...so we had moved into our apartment in the back of our property and we live on 11 acres...so when the EMT's got here they couldn't even find us at first...I could see their lights up at the house and kept trying to tell the 911 operator where we were at, any way to make a long story short they did finally finds us...but try as they did it was too late... God needed Wally more than me!!!
Now to say I was in a state of Total shock and numb is an under statement...I can't even tell you the pain I was in...My Mama and Daddy came to stay with me and all my family came and helped move me back into my home, I could not think or even speak to another soul...the condolence cards would come in and I would leave them unopened..
Now in September of that year my Church was having a Yard sale and on my way home from work I stopped just to see what they had, I was standing there with a group of women from the church talking , and some woman I don't know walked over to me and put this sweet little PINK ANGEL in my hand and folded my hand over the top of it and all she said was you "Need This" I had not a clue who this woman was even to this day nor does any one from my church group know who she was...I just know she folded my hand over this Angel and when she did if was like God released so much pain from me at that very moment and I looked at the little PINK ANGEL and seen it had my name on it...look and you will see it says GLORIA across the front...
I tried to look for this woman and she was no where to be found...I truly do believe we have ANGLE'S that walk among us...I have been blessed twice now in 8 years with an ANGEL in my life.. God does hear your prayers, he will answer you, maybe in the form of a PINK ANGEL and maybe in the form of someone you have never ever meet he will only give you as much pain as you can handle....
God also blessed me with my second ANGEL...when my Mama died last year...and again I have never met her or seen her and probably never will...but I know God send her to me to ease my great pain I was going through with the lost of my mama...And Girls!! she is right here in blogland now, I met her on "Rate my space" She reached out to me and touched my heart, with her kindness , her prayers, and her up lifting spirit, her love of God and her family....Now many of you know her as "Picket" but I like to think of her as my Second ANGEL... God does work wonders.
Hope all of you have a safe and great Saturday...and Please do your self a favor and visit this Great ANGEL at http://picketsplace.blogspot.com/ Out of all my possessions This PINK ANGEL is just priceless to me along with my Picket Girl !!! Hugs and smiles Gloria
