Stop...And Smell The Roses by theresahelmer Stop...And Smell The Roses by theresahelmer
Roses are my favorite flower, my late mom had one pink rose bush in our childhood home (A very small town, Taiwan). When the roses were in bloom, she used to gazed at them and smiled, I had always wondered what were her thoughts...(she lived in her own world due to her severe mental illness)...I knew the pink roses made her happy somehow...

There's not a day I don't miss her...And...

...I am still desperately trying to connect with her, in my own crazy sort of ways, I suppose this is one of the reasons I have more than 40 rose bushes in my garden (over compensate much...?) haha


(I made some heart-shaped vanilla sandwich sugar cookies with Spring colored sprinkles. Yum)

I love roses too. For me the white rose is peaceful somehow.

Its a beautiful shot.

My mom is still alive and as I've gotten older, I have come to realize and appreciate everything she did for me.

that's sweet, i am glad you appreciate her.

my late mother and i did not have a relationship due to her mental illness, but i know if she could love her children, she would. as a mom myself, i can only imagine how sad it was for her that she could not express the love she had for her children. 

i cant wait to reunite with her one day, where i know she does not suffer from her illness any longer. where she and i could have a conversation, finally....:heart:
