    Thank you for sharing this quote! It’s one that my inner critic and my inner cynic need to be reminded of again and again. I’m really grateful that you posted it!

    Great quote – Somehow it reminds me of another saying this a somewhat similar idea: You can look at a glass as either being half full or half empty.

      I thought so, too. Didn’t hurt that I have taken a bazillion photos of that rose bush either. 🙂

      Thank you, Aunt Beulah. This is a bush my son gave me for Mother’s Day many years ago and now the thing has gone crazy. It’s a huge bush, and this year it’s so heavy with blossoms it is drooping and flat on top. I love the thing and cannot bear to move, trim, or do anything other than enjoy it year after year. So, it’s kind of wild, but I love it. And, yes, it’s fragrant. 🙂 Have a great 4th!
