Life isn't a bed of roses. But when the petals of kindness surround us, it sure feels good. We all need affirmation, praise, someone to tell us we look good, or a word or two leading us in the right direction. Kindness goes a long way doesn't it? Though my Mother would say, "... a bop on the head or two, isn't always bad."
I guess that is the secret of roses...soft petals and thorns in the right places.
One rose petal, after another makes a rose.
We have the gift to love. Everyday there is a path that can lead us to loving one another. A friend said this evening, "Life is everything, all at once."
