We are connected in so many ways...







We are all connected in so many ways.






I was thinking about the joy and hope that is born when I watch someone around me succeed.







And the feelings of loss I remember when I feel someone's grief.

My creation





How infidelity seems to make all of us connect on some level.  Making us  want to hold that person up in our thoughts and prayers, as they experience this kind of hurt.








With each life lesson, I seem to connect deeper with joy and with feelings of sorrow.

Some people hide from feeling the emotions of others, and seem to live on the surface of what God intended us to feel.






For me, it is the reason that we are here...to connect,












to inspire,








to celebrate








to share,








to comfort,








and to hold each other up, as we experience the joys and hurts in life.

I am so happy I moved into the land of Blog, because during these years I have met so many amazing people who have restored my hope in everything that is good.

And you are always willing to encourage, inspire, and lift everyone up with your beautiful words.






So, I thought I would give you some of mine.




















The song for this post is a little melody from Peter Rabbit.





The only thing that I have shared today that is Pink is my heart.  Yet I want to remind you to stop by and visit Bev from How Sweet The Sound for another lovely Pink Saturday.

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Karen.

We are definitely all connected in very many ways. I believe the key is that we continue to discover and acknowledge all of those connections.

Just imagine the joy when we all pray loving prayers for each other. The world will be smiling.
