Wild roses are fairest, and nature a better gardener than art.
~Louisa May Alcott
And a link to an image showing my last visit to Louisa.
Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven’t time, and to see takes time – like to have a friend takes time.
Nearly every year I resolve to be a better friend. However, nearly every year I look back and feel that I’ve failed at doing that.
One recent “small” success in that area was when I was traveling last month and managed to visit many friends in many places that I hadn’t seen in awhile, such as Susan, Melinda, Melanie, Sarah, Alison, Vickie, and Courtney. We hugged, laughed, ate, schemed and talked. It felt so good and indulgent. It was so worth taking the time.
