While we have not had any really severe winter weather yet here in Georgia, we have had a number of freezing nights and frosty mornings.
Despite the cold temperatures, hollowing winds and numerous rain storms that have plagued us off and on throughout December and into January, this delicate rose decided to share a couple of blooms a few days before Christmas. It’s the only one in my rose garden that shows any sign of life at the moment.
Just this week have the blooms begun to turn a bit brown around the edges. I know I should deadhead them, but I can’t seem to do away with their lovely beauty just yet.
To me the roses are a reminder that beauty comes into our lives at the most unusual times and can leave very quickly without warning. Treasure the love ones in your life for you know not have long you may have with them.
Sorry to be a bit melodramatic today, but this is the 19th anniversary of my mother’s death. I just want to stress the importance of enjoying every moment you have with those you love and not to put off all those things you intend to do with them saying we’ll do it tomorrow or next week. A few minutes shared with them now, here and there, will have even greater meaning later on for the memories it created instead of the empty wishes for what you should have done.
Remembering a loving mother who taught me the joy of reading and shared with me her love of books.
