Eyes are amazing. We look at something and our eyes fill in gaps that cameras leave exposed. Take a look at the second picture. Notice anything unusual about the beak?

Serenity Prayer

God, give us grace to accept with serenity
the things that cannot be changed,
Courage to change the things
which should be changed,
and the Wisdom to distinguish
the one from the other.

Living one day at a time,
Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace,
Taking, as Jesus did,
This sinful world as it is,
Not as I would have it,
Trusting that You will make all things right,
If I surrender to Your will,
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life,
And supremely happy with You forever in the next.


by Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)Complete, Unabridged, Original Version.

I found multiple versions online of this poem that I have used for years. This web page had the most information available.

Bored so bored.

Pink Parade

Waiting to begin.

Pink and Proud Survivor

Butterfly girls.

Oh wow!

Big numbers ~ over 30,000.

Gathering but still waiting.

Guys in Pink

Can you see me?

Woo Hoo!
It took 15 min. to cross the starting line.

For the Girls!

Bears came too. :)

Team Because...

Pink Power.

Say What?

Goooo Team!!!

Yup, men can get breast cancer too.

Fuzzy Pink.

Pink Ponytail.

Team work.

Walkin' so more can walk on by.

I love tied dyed.

I cried.

Tired trooper.

What can I say?

Sharing talents and cheering us on.

Who says redheads can't wear pink?

Cheering on the walkers.

You can see where the route will go. At one point, there are 5K of people walking for breast cancer.

The marching band is playing for the Pink Parade.

How much longer do we need to cheer?

The end is in sight.

An angel watching over all.

Treasure Your Chest!

Resting at last.

I am putting this to the test to see how many pictures I can get in one blog. Thanks for coming by.
