You always know the right thing to say and the right thing to give.
A couple months after Grandma died you brought me a rose bush in her honor, to help me remember her. It was so sweet and so thoughtful, and so Laura Atkins.
This week my Peace Rose bloomed!
One full bloom and two more buds so far, and each day I go on the deck and check it’s progress.
And I thrill to see the new growth,
The velvety softness of the butter yellow, the pale pink of the outer petals,
and knowing there are more to come…
this year and next, and the year after, and the year after that…
to remind me of my Grandmother….
It reminds me of you. And your friendship.
