Of flowers and people

A llittle color in a dull place

Oft quoted is the nature of a rose, with its thorny stem leading to a beautiful, fragrant bloom. Yet, that big negative does not in anyway detract the rose's position.

Aren't people the same way. Especially the ones we hold close. We know they have faults. We know there will sometimes be pain. Clashes and conflicts. Does that mean we discard them? No. What stays with us is not the prick of the thorn but the texture of the petal.

If anything, it makes it more worthwhile.

A thing of beauty is a joy forever.
Roses are relationships. They don't claim to be perfect. But they do light up your life.
