It’s Friday and we are in week six of our 52 Project. Please click the link at the bottom of each post to view 17 amazing interpretations! Don’t stop until you are directed back to me. These awesome women never cease to amaze me! This week’s theme is LOVE.
When I think of love the first thought that comes to mind is the ubiquitous ROSE. I was drawn to it plus I had it sitting on my dining room table. Convenient, right? However, as I began to think about this ROSE, I came to realize that it was symbolic of so much more. The ubiquity that I had given this rose was replaced by wonderful memories associated with this beautiful sweet smelling flower. When the CDR and I were first married, I planted red roses in our first’s home backyard garden. They had some trouble growing but as soon as our lawn man trimmed them. They bloomed beautifully! I made sure to plant them again in our next “new” home. With as often as we move, it was important to have a constant or familiarity besides ourselves and our belongings. For me planting my favorite flowers whether they were roses or not symbolized the start of new family memories, our new life in a new state, our new home. Moving often takes great courage, patience as well as a sense of adventure. We always make the best of it.
