Think Pink!


My sweet blogging friend, Renae, of Simple Sequins, has recently discovered that she has breast cancer and will soon start treatment. Her blog is about fashion, and she simply shines when she is modeling her ensembles. Renae's attitude is perpetually upbeat and she's incredibly KIND with a huge HEART.

For Valentine's Day I thought I'd try to honor Renae and let her know that I am praying for her and thinking about her each day. May God continue to watch over you and others battling this disease. I am confident you are going to beat this and do it in big style along the way! Hugs and love to you dear girl.

What a wonderful way to support your friend. And I can't think of anything - or anyone, for that matte - that shows off a pink bow tie better than a tufted titmouse!

The stats course is over - but I need to re-boot my brain! A day of birding should do nicely!

You are a dear friend!!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I missed that from Renae. I'll have to go over there. I just love your bird!

Kittie Howard said...

A beautiful post, Gail. Renane will definitely be in my prayers. My sister beat a very aggressive form of breast cancer and has been free for 10 years. The docs wanted to do a single mastectomy but she insisted upon a double mastectomy, what we think saved it from reoccurring. Here's hoping Renane recovers soonest and gets on with her life.

Gail, I'm leaning toward neutrals. What's your fav combo??

Gordon said...

Amen to all the above Gail, and thanks for stopping by.
All the best Gordon.

I can say with no reservation that I love Renae. For lack of a better way to say it here, I am planning to post a poem on my blog soon in dedication to how we are all truly connected. Thank you for dedicating this post to a most brilliant woman with a smile that is courageous and that can knock down the walls of the unknown. Many thanks! Anita
