A Smile From Above
One lone perfect rose retrieved from the rosebush outside my kitchen window. The last rose to bloom until spring. We have had many cold frosty nights but this beauty decided to bloom for a special occasion. For my son's engagement party I chose to use the one perfect rose instead of going out and buying a fancy bouquet. Reason? The rosebush that this rose came from was given to us by my dear Grammy and Grandaddy. My grandparents adored my son and would have so loved to have been with us to help us celebrate. In my heart I feel like this was a sign that they were celebrating right alongside us giving us a smile from above!
