We rush around, doing errands, work, taking care of our homes, our families.  We worry we don’t do enough.  We worry we are doing too much.

In all the rushing, we need to remember to take time to look around.  Someone said don’t forget to stop and smell the roses.  How right they are.

Sometime in the fall, mom and I stopped into the local garden shop.  In the patio area, there were roses for sale (still!  we had already had a hard frost).  This rose was there, and while not a clear shot, so colorful it was.  It was an heirloom rose, with the full rose scent.  Lovely.
