 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 05/14/20, 7:57 AM - "~'~ I Love Pink ~'~" (#18 in a Series of 20):
As we slowly venture back into the world, let's hope a new gentleness becomes our theme. Let's all be gentle with ourselves and others,  human and animal, as well as to the earth. This has been a trauma for so many. This brings me to another one of my favorite things, the softness of Pink. 

 “There is no energy greater than the power of Love. Once I finally embraced this concept, I realized that the path to Ascension always begins with the heart, and the color Pink.”

Eleyne-Mari Sharp, Mad About Hue: A Memoir in Living Color    

   Thank you, Shari!

From - 06/03/19:

A man was madly in love with a princess and wanted to propose, but an evil witch had cast a spell on him and he could say only one word a year. So he waited 14 agonizing years—accumulating all his words—before approaching his beloved.

Finally, the big day arrived. When he saw her, his heart skipped a beat. He gathered his nerve, dropped to his knees, and intoned, “My darling, I have waited many years to say this... Will you marry me?”

The princess turned around, smiled, and said, “Pardon?”
