Women Supporting Women

This morning I started to surf around some of my favorite blogs to see what everyone is up to. I've been a little behind lately, I have yet another life altering change coming up. I'm still trying to make lemonade out of lemons and some days it's easier than others. One thing I always tell myself is that with all I'm dealing with, there are many others out there who are facing much bigger challenges.

One thing that keeps me going is all of you. Your support and kind words give me strength to keep persevering. We have all witnessed this here in Blogland over and over again. Today I dropped in at Sissie's Shabby Cottage  and learned about the story I'm sharing with you today. I know that many of you have already heard about Colette's Room Makeover, we travel around Blogland together or you could have read Colette's story of battling with cancer in the latest issue of Guideposts Magazine. For those who haven't, please take a few minutes of your time. By leaving a comment on the blogs listed below a $1.00 donation will be made for another room makeover for someone in need of an uplift, both physically and emotionally. Women supporting women — it doesn't get any better than that!

Kelee @ The Katillac Shack

Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound

Sherry @ Country Wings in Phoenix

Charlotte & Ginger @ Miracle Sundays

Working together we can bring a smile like Colette's to the face of another.

Colette's story made me cry with sadness and happiness. The power of women working together is incredible. Her story and the need for donations spread like wildfire through Blogland. Bravo.

Hope things get better for you...remember...we are the best at making lemonade!

Isn't this a wonderful story? I have enjoyed each post that I've read about Colette.

So, is there anything I can do for you? I hope nothing too serious is going on.

I read about Colette on another blog and voted on every one of them! Such a heart-warming story. Blogging has helped me to see that there are more GOOD people out there than I had feared. We hear all the bad stuff on the nightly news, but very little about the good folks out there. I don't know what's going on or about to go on in your life, but know that I wish you the best and will lift up prayers that God will guide you and bless you. You have been through a lot it seems, but I've found in life that most of us go through at least one life-altering situation. We lost our nine-year old daughter in 1986 and life definitely changed. But God was good and brought us through and now we are blessed with our two grandchildren. Hang in there, sweetie...and pray, pray, pray!

I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
