When I was a child I had a family friend whom I called Aunt Ruth. I was thinking about her today :)
She was blessed with the ability to grow the most beautiful, fragrant, velvety roses.
On my birthday she would present me with one of her finest, largest, red roses. I always looked forward to receiving one, it made me happy and always made me feel so special!
Not everyone got a rose like that, let me tell you. She didn't give them away to everyone.
Also, I have yet to find roses in the store like her homegrown beauties. You can't find a rose like that in the store.
I am so grateful to have this memory. Wow, I was honored with the best of the best :)
