Stop and smell the roses ...

Come on a tour of my rose garden is just over 4 years old.
Monday, I noticed every single rose was blooming beautifully. They made my heart sing.

PS The odd shoes - on the same feet - completely their doing ... Cross my heart ! I found them in garden this way.They are smarter than me because I had no shoes on and got a huge thorn in my foot.

The Love seat
Throwing tiny rocks they collected in the nappy sacs LOL.

I planned to post earlier this week ...but spent over 30 mins digging a rose thorn out of foot instead.
We have more than 13 roses but the light was bright . I have lots of red roses too (5 different ones just didn't photograph well).

It's been raining here for 2 days . The sun is shining today.I wanted to post this yesterday.Yesterday, was the my dear Toolman's birthday.I planned to post this ...but life , spring cleaning, de-cluttering and keeping up with the Brothers just kept me way too busy.

Come Rain,Come Shine

Darling, we have now celebrated 19 birthdays together through the good and the bad times. I have known you almost half my life.

We have shared the joy of success, a home and 4 children. While it hasn't always come easy we have shared many good things in life as well as enduring the loss of loved ones.

I hope this next year is going to be a great one for you and I cannot imagine anyone else that I would want to spend this life with. You are my heart - even though we have had some hard times of late.

I hope that we all have a respite from the struggles and can pause a moment or maybe even three, to just reflect and recognize all that we do have and enjoy it simply for what it is, without thinking about what it is not.

You are a good and responsible man, the sort of fellow anyone can always call on for help. Where you can possibly find a way to help, you will... beyond measure. Even at the expense of physical and emotional pain.

You work very hard for our family ... though I wish you didn't have to work so hard .You amaze me with your strength and tenacity.Our sons are going to be incredible Dads someday, owed mostly to your spirit and love.

I saw the look in your eyes at our newly born children.The incredible awe and wonder that a newborn (or two) inspires and the anguish and disbelief that stillbirth brings.When D, and then the Brothers arrived neither us of knew what to expect but you have most definitely risen to the challenge and have every day since...

Here’s to the year ahead with lots of fun, more laughs and love, less arguments and more making out up! Come rain, come shine I will love you forever and beyond measure.
