A Chance to Stop and Smell the Roses
Aren't these flowers beautiful? They were the altar flowers at church on Sunday and were given in honor of us. We have been here for two years now and were surprised by this lovely bouquet. We got to take them home and they have delighted us all week long. I've never had such a large bouquet, but it makes the table look so pretty. The kids loved looking at each flower during dinner and asking about all the details. It was nice to smell the fragrance again every time we walked into the house. Sophie was pretty sick yesterday, and the flowers brightened an otherwise yucky day, like get well flowers. This week they have been a constant reminder of how blessed we are to be here.
