Miracle Pink Saturday



I am so happy to participate in Miracle Week.
I have been blessed so many times in my life.
There have been some very rough patches in my past though.




I  have come close to death 3 times in my life.
Once as a small child when I had pneumonia.
Then another bout with pneumonia as a young adult.
And finally a third time when I contracted typhoid while living
in the Middle East.




I have lost everything I have owned to fire twice in my life.

Yet I have experienced great miracles and blessings and I am
hopeful and full of peace.

I am thankful for a loving husband. I am thankful that I still have my dear Mom.
I am thankful that my Aunt survived and is thriving after open heart surgery.
I am thankful for my sweet little cottage and all of my dear friends.
And of course, I am thankful for dear little Bentley who fills my
heart with joy each day.

And most importantly ~ I am thankful for my deep faith.




Never give up believing that good things can come your way.
I am proof of this.

Please join 


for this very special day filled with miracles and blessings.

Bentley and I send you love, hope and peace.

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  9. Sometimes it is indeed the dark times which help us to appreciate the light. Even when things have been hard we can see all the things we have to be thankful for. Gold has to be refined by fire to perfectly reflect back the face of God.
