I am joining Bev today for Pink Saturday.
"We are in fellowship with many to celebrate Colette's Miracle Makeover Party. Guideposts Makeover Reveal Party can be viewed by visiting our very own Kelee at The Katillac Shack. Thank you, Kelee, for inspiring us, and for introducing us to Colette. You are a blessing to all of us.


Thank-you Guideposts Magazine for bringing us Colette Gauthier's story."




This postcrossing postcard from China came in January 2009 from a young woman with the most amazing message:


"I look to the new year and my wish for you:
Peace within your heart

Love from family and friends

Hope to make it through each day

Sunshine to light the day

A tear to show compassion

A heart to hold the love.

Happy New Year friend!"

I am of the generation that grew up with images of Chinese people riding bicycles in shapeless Mao suits wearing caps with red stars on them. China was one of the hated Communist enemies. Yes, the country of China has changed greatly since the 1970's. But a postcard message like this changes my thinking, permanently. Maybe there is a chance for world peace to grow, one human interaction at a time.

Happy Pink Saturday, Viridian. Thank you for making Pink Saturday special, and for taking part in this day of celebration and thanks.

There truly are miracles going on all around us every day. We just have to open our hearts in acceptance.

I do believe we can each make a difference toward world peace. I must have hope.
