Reading of The Day!
A Rose Is a Rose Is a Rose
"People from a planet without flowers would
think we must be mad with joy the whole
time to have such things about us."
- Iris Murdoch
A small bouquet of wild violets picked by a five-year-old, a bride's bouquet of daisies because he gave her one daisy on their first date, a spray of mixed garden flowers decorating the dining room table because it's their 14th anniversary- flowers do make us mad with joy. Flowers can linger in our hearts long after they wilt. They are like the sweetest words, the most loving hug, the richest, and a heavenly hammock on a sweet spring day.
TODAY I WILL GIVE FLOWERS TO SOMEONE WHO LEAST EXPECTS THEM.
