Oh How I Love Our Roses!

Especially the Yellow! They always bloom first and they always are beautiful. Our rose garden isn't an ordinary one. We have about 40 rose bushes and each one is beautiful and special to us. A lot of these roses came from my sister's yard up in Tacoma and have been planted down here with a lot of tender loving care. We have a bench in our garden and we like to think of it as a special garden dedicated to her. She loved roses so very much...especially the yellow! I still think of her everyday and miss her more than anyone could ever imagine. There is nothing quite like a sister...so if you have one.....love her....treasure her and make sure she knows how special she is. When they are gone, they can't be replaced but I do have something of hers she loved dearly....her beautiful roses! The neighbors comment on their beauty and wonder what I do to make them so beautiful. I just tell them they're special roses. I really think they get a little extra angel dust to bring a special remembrance of sisterhood into my life!

I'm so glad you took the roses. They are gorgeous and I know my mom is proud. I miss her too, everyday. I hope your girls don't take it for granted b/c they are so lucky to have you around. I wish I had more time with my mom. I miss her not being with all my kids. I'm glad you get to be with yours as often as you do. Life throws us wierd and crazy turns but thank goodness for the gospel and families being forever.
