Hello and welcome to a special Pink Saturday in remembrence of 911. Please stop by to visit our hostess Beverly of How Sweet the Sound to get a list of all the other participants.

Never forget and never forgotten, God Bless all who lost their lives on 9/11/01. God Bless our troops who fight everyday for our freedom! God Bless our fire fighters and our police officers who still risk their lives everyday. Our prayers are with you all forever!

My pink roses today (in remembrence of all those who lost their life that day)are from my sister's web site Rose Hart Gifts. Stop by to visit her lovely web-site with many fabulous treasures. My favorites on her web site are Lady Primrose/Tryst, perfume. Trapp candles my favorite is orange/vanilla, their candles have a bottle of perfume in every candle. Best of all are her vintage dresses that she alters to a perfect fit for you.

Next I have a few more pics of my grandson's Navy graduation.
Below Sailor Joe Morris! Love you Joey, we are so proud of you! Joey is now attending dental school and his dream is to become a dentist.

When I saw the Sailor's bow their heads in prayer I could not resist snapping this pic before bowing my own head. With our government taking God out of everything I was very touched to see that our Navy still bow's their heads in prayer.
Very Touching!!!!

Our beachfront resort at the Great Lakes in Chicago.

View from our window to the waterfront.

I came across this heart of rocks on the beach, could have been made my a Sailor for his sweetheart! LOL I'm a hopeless romantic.
Funny I grew up near the Jersey Shore and we had shells, here being a lake the beach was full of rocks, no shells.

My Grandson's getting caught up on the months they have missed while apart. I love this pic!

A little pink in the mall in Chicago. Could not resist snapping this pic for you all!

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me and letting me be a proud grandma! I've loved sharing with you and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Blessings to ya, Shirl

Happy Pink Saturday Shirl Sweetie...
A beautiful share and tribute today. I love the patriotic shares of the grandson, and how proud, he is going to be a dentist. You will always be taken care of. I love it.

I love the Bass Pro Shop, we would never get my Daddy out of there, he would still be in there looking. He has always loved that store. It is one of his favs.

Love the photo of the heart in the sand. I too believe it is for someone's sweetheart. It just has to be.

Love the photo of the grandson fishing on the pier. Looks so inviting. I think I would have my pole out there in the water too.

A beautiful share on this beautiful Saturday. Many hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry

Love the pictures of the soldiers in prayer, there is still a few public places you are allowed to do so. Your grandson looks great in his uniform. We really honor the military in our family.

Hello Shirl, your grandson is very handsome and I hope he realizes his dream to be a dentist. The sailors bowing their heads is very heartwarming.

I love your photos you shared today. A lovely post. The heart in the sand is a treasure.
