the power of the rose
many years ago, true friendships were formed on the power of the rose. we would email each other about findings, advice, cheerleading, befores & afters, and so on. we learned from each other and compared copious notes about our gardens. from the garden, these friendships took root to other capacities of our lives. when prayers were needed for ailing parents, loss of a child, job opportunities or rebuilding of a family, this circle was there to lend the cup of sugar that was needed.
saturday, i got to spend the afternoon with three of these friends. the best words to describe the day are freaking and awesome! i thought about them and the rest of the rosegang yesterday when a new workweek started and we were back to our own grooves and so thankful for saturday's airpocket of love.
the newest project around here is painting the interior of this old garage. it will be a month of sundays before it is completed, but the painting has started. the smart thing would be to rebuild it and the hard thing would be to patch it up, so patching and painting we will go. there are big hopes in white paint. oh, and plans for a disco ball.
