Centennial Celebration with a touch of pink

birthday celebrations. i guess some birthdays have given us delight and others bring on the reality of life moving on. but, when does one really say thank you Lord i made it to 100. i can only pray that i live a long healthy life. i pray my mind and body work as one. some of us are blessed with longevity like mary. i work for an outreach program helping senior citizens with home delivered meals, we offer a lunch site and various other services. mary is a member of the lunch site, and this week we helped her celebrate her 100th birthday. local politicians came out and presented mary with a lovely plaque. the two local news papers took lots of pictures and will be writing a story on mary's life. her cake was donated and i made her a pretty PINK tiara. all in all the party was just great and mary loved it. here's a few pictures of the centennial. we should all be as blessed as mary!!! PINK saturday is hosted by beverly @ howsweetthesound.typepad.com and many PINKies do their pinkness with her. stop by leave a comment.
have a blessed week

What a lovely pink tiara you made for Mary!!

100 years old!!

I am not so sure I would like to live to that age. It can be very sad when you outlive your friends and your family. as a nurse, I see this happen quite often and old age has it's pros and cons.

HPS!!

Hi Marie,

Nice to meet you! I live in central NJ about 30 min from you. I know a lot of people have had problems with the rains etc. Seems a lot of trees have uprooted themselves too. Sorry to hear about your water problem. I know what you mean about getting in a slump and not wanting to post. Life just sometimes isn't nice and gets to us. Hope you had smoothed things over with your co-worker also. Your project looks interesting. Looking forward to seeing it completed. How wonderful this sweet lady cleebrated her 100th birthday. Enjoy the weekend, it is beautiful today.

Debbie
