Slow Down and Notice!

these are my last flowers,
heavy sigh,
They lasted almost 3 weeks,
I dry a lot of the roses,
put them in my beautiful  clear glass jars or bottles.
A friend of mine does some amazing work with dried flowers.
She uses old window frames,
glues the roses onto a fabric backing,
she uses lose petals that look like the ground.
They are beautiful. I  was looking for a 
photo to show you 
and could not find it.
But I will.
My wish for today,
If I saw a child crying, I would wipe away their tears.
If I saw someone struggling, I would offer to help,
If I knew someone was lonely, I would sit and talk,
If I knew you were hungry, I would make you something to eat,
My wish for today is to take the time to see how others are doing around you.
My wish is that your lives are filled with peace and love.
