THE STORY OF THE PINK BINKIE
Once upon a time, there was the sweetest child you could ever meet. She had a love of pink binkies, and don't kid yourself, she had many. Allie is her name and she has red hair and blue eyes. Allie's birthday was the first week in December and she would be three years old. Now, you must understand, her parents believed she was getting too old for a binkie, she was no longer a baby, but a big girl now. Three whole years to be exact, count them on your fingers, one, two and three. Her parents pondered the question: how do we get her to stop the need for the binkies???? A bright idea came to her mother and they all sat down for a chat around the dinner table. Allie, she asked, now that you are so big, how would you feel about giving Santa all of your binkies to give to all the children out there that need them and don't have any binkies of their own? That was a good idea she thought, and so they rounded up all of Allie's binkies, left them for Santa, which he gladly took, and lived happily ever after.
For anyone following my blog, you know that I am in the middle of spring cleaning. Allie and her family stayed with us last fall while their home was getting painted and recarpeted. When I moved the beds this past week in the guest room to vacumn, I found a pink binkie! I thought of Pink Saturday and the wonderful gift our grand-daughter had donated from her heart to others. I just had to share this story of one little 3 year old child with a heart of gold. This is a pink binkie I will keep and share with Allie in later years.
Happy Pink Saturday to you and yours, and thankyou Beverly from how sweet the sound for making this possible. Please be sure to stop by her blog and everyone else's this week to say hi.
This is our precious Allie, the light of our lives.
