Anna’s prompt for the day:
This month is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I am personally going through my own journey this month, of ups and downs, hospital visits and call backs. I believe we are all woman doing this challenge so I thought it very appropriate to use our 365 prompts to "think pink".It seems like I pre-empted Anna this month as this week we are going to "think pink".
So here is another week of me "thinking pink".
“Almost all words do have color and nothing is more pleasant than to utter a pink word and see someone's eyes light up and know it is a pink word for him or her too”.
Do you have a pink word?
Gentleness is a word that evokes nice pink feelings for me.
“A profusion of pink roses being ragged in the rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring.”
~ William Carlos Williams
