Awhile back I saw these little felted birds and gasped! Not only are they adorable, but they are made by my little friends, Aubrie and Rylee! These little wool love birds came out of the cage just to have their photo taken this morning and to wish you a happy day!
If you have never stopped by for a visit at The Wild Raspberry, please treat yourself today. The blog is the creation of three sisters and sister in laws, Chasity, Deborah and Shauna. They have a lovely online shop and offer adorable pillows, handbags and aprons. They are also celebrating their 100th post and are having a lovely giveaway.

I am also asking for you to say a prayer for Shauna as she was just diagnosed with cancer. It seems so unfair that such young people are afflicted with illnesses like this. You have all been so good to me in sending me your deepest of thoughts and prayers, so I ask that you extend your hearts a little further to the Heck Family.

God Bless you and have a super weekend.

Stretching my arms wide to send a (((hug))) to you - where ever you are!

Hi Becky :)

I know about those sweet girls and it's so tragic about Shauna. I've been praying for her.

The little birds really are adorable! I have those cupcakes from the last post too :)

Dear Becky,
Thank you so very much for your kind words and prayer requests on Shauna's behalf. You are such a kind soul and good friend, if you don't mind me laying claim to you by proxy. :o) Love, Debbie

Hi Becky!
Love the birdies! Love the Wild Raspberry! Thanks for sharing their
prayer concern. I did not know about Shauna. That is so sad. But she is young and strong and that could be a help in this situation.

I hope you have a great weekend this special Memorial Day.

What saddens me to deeply is the Decoration Day/Memorial Day has become a long weekend to so many young people. It's a time for beer and cook outs and nothing else.

My father, who served in WWII, would go to the cemetery each Memorial Day to place flags on the graves of the fallen soldiers. He did that until he was 87 years old and shortly thereafter, he passed away.

I miss the true meaning of the day.
