Bud to blossom

My sister-in-law was in town for a very brief amount of time last weekend. She brought with her a beautiful bunch of roses from her well tended and much loved garden.

Over the week we have had the pleasure of watching these roses open from tight buds to become the most brilliantly coloured blooms.

The pink rose from the bunch has the most divine scent. When you walk in to our lounge the smell gently weaves its way to your nostrils and you feel its deliciousness take over.

I am reminded of the saying, “Stop and smell the roses”. What an unexpected bonus – to be reminded to slow down and enjoy the present moment.

Thanks Gilly – I love you and miss you.

05. Every day is now. The present moment.

39. Every day trust that there is a bigger picture. You are a part of it even if you may not know what it is.
