Stop and smell the roses
I took Jessica to the church retreat today. She was a wreak. She basically did not want to get out of the car. Oh well! That's autism. What can I say? I had lunch with Sarah. She was excited to tell me all about her time. I assure you she is having a great time! Juergen watched Jess so I could drink coffee with a good friend. He was sick last night but is feeling much better. Thank God! When I was in the cafe I could smell the best rose I've every smelled. Really, it was amazing. I found out it's called a Frederic Mistral Rose. It is a very good rose. It is disease resistant, and hardy in winter. It grows to be 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide. If you get one, you will need a large place to put it. I'm not sure I have the space. I'll keep it in mind for the day I have a big garden! So I got to see my boys playing soccer, Nicole sleeping in the sun, Sarah playing hard in the sand box, and I kissed Juergen good bye as he went for a hike. I brought Jessica home. I'm not feeling sorry for myself. I had a cappuccino in a castle and I discovered the most beautiful rose. My family is very happy...and this makes me happy! Some day I will have a garden that has a Frederic Mistral Rose surrounded by lavender! The smell will be over whelming!
