The Book of Roses
Thoughts While Creating
The air was filled with the scent of love.
Upon our arrival at the restaurant we were presented with a bouquet of roses. A symbol of love and gentleness to help us celebrate our upcoming anniversary. This place has long been our favorite. It was the scene of our first date and brings back memories of receiving our first rose that night, so long ago.
Outside our window, the hustle and bustle of the city continues. Holding hands, we sit across from each other and reminisce about our life. Our time is spent reliving our hopes and dreams, some accomplished and some still waiting to take flight. Raising our family and watching them create their own lives was certainly one of our greatest thrills.
Yes, time moves on quickly, and often we are too busy to savor it. Are our moments spent reflecting, being lived as though this was our last day? If there is only one thing to learn in life it is to cherish your own bouquet of memories and hold them close to your heart.
