Papaw's Roses

Chris and I are with his family right now. His Papaw is under Hospice care and is not expected to make it much longer. We went over to his grandparents' house today to take care of a few things and I saw his gorgeous roses blooming. I snipped a few, put them in a mason jar and brought them up to the hospital for Mamaw and the rest of the family to enjoy. And you know what? He still has beautiful tomatoes on the vine with tiny yellow blossoms popping out everywhere. So I tucked a few of those in there too.

Tomato blossoms and roses? Somehow, it works beautifully.

I wish you lived closer. What a lovely tribute and memorable brightness you brought to days that some would consider dark.
