An Inspiring Saturday!!!

This afternoon I was thinking and praying about what to write today....there are so many people that come to mind when I think of struggle...hard times...fortitude....strength....and because this is mainly for us pink girly girls ...I kept thinking I should  write about one of the many women that have inspired me..but my Dad just kept popping up....In the picture above he is the little one in his daddies arms
He grew up like many children..poor but happy.....
He fell in love and married my mom......but that is not what has inspired me...
It is how he has risen above all , life has thrown at him...the death of a child...divorce...boy! could I write a book! What I wanted to share today was a wonderful experience  that my brothers and sister shared with Papa....he gathered us all( kids and grand kids) together for a cook--out; or so we thought.... after the meal was done he put us all in circle around him and brought out a basin filled with water and starting with the oldest,( which is me) ...he washed our feet and asked us to forgive him for not raising us up in the Lord...he whispered something in each of our ears just for us to know...it was one of the most beautiful  experiences of my life...it took a lot of courage for that one act of humility. Papa just had his 77th birthday, I am so proud of him...and I love him very much! No pink here except for a few noses! Snif Snif!
Thank you to Beverly once again ...and do not forget

Homemade Pink Laundry Soap

I made this laundry soap a while back...just because I thought it was so pretty.....but after using it...I actually prefer it to store bought..I had to order some of the supplies on line..so I was slow to make another batch....I am so glad I did..my clothes smell so fresh and look cleaner
And...well... it is just fun to make.....
it almost looks good enough to eat!!!!!
Isn't it pretty !?!
about 89 cents.....
You can use a food processor but I don't have one so this seems to work just as well...
The little scoop is a coffee measuring spoon...it is 1/8 of a cup....I only use this much for most of my loads...two if I think it is extra dirty...and I have a front loading machine....
It just looks so pretty sitting on my washer...makes a dreary job ...cheerful !
 I chose " Thru Pink Curtains" for you to take a look at this week-end...I picked her blog cause I have the very same curtains in my dining room... they are just dreamy! Have a Pink Blessed Week! Don't forget Beverly...give her a blog hug for all her work...
