Thanksgiving #6**

How did the rose ever open its heart and give to this world all of its beauty? It felt the encouragement of Light against its being; otherwise we all remain too frightened.


I am thankful today for roses blooming in my backyard in November.

**I am making thanks each day of this month of Thanksgiving.


  1. Me too. I, too, have roses blooming. And I, too, am grateful, especially when the butterflies alight on them.

  2. Loved this quote today - thanky ou for the beautiful illustration of it!
    So glad that you were able to open that video of the little guy and the gorgeous poem. He embodies it so much better than the poet himself (did you also find that clip?)! Out of the mouths of babes, eh?

    I'm happy that "Dr. Nostril" gave you a smile. Can't you just see her, looking up into his nose from the dentist chair, and saying exactly what popped into her mind? xoxoxo

  3. Oh, this rose reminds me of my grandmother's roses. I don't do well growing them, but my sister has inherited the knack. We are having lovely cool weather and gorgeous skies today - I'm grateful for that.

    Love the quote, too...

  4. great idea. i'm thankful for your roses too. we had a hard frost and all but the strongest black eyed susan is a shriveled brown mess.

    love the quote and your photo.
    lucky you.

  5. I suppose you are aware of the folk-lore
    about things that spring in vvinter times?

    pretty pictures and beautiful thoughts

  6. if you trace the tip of the tale of the mermaide on your blogs heather Elizabeth it resembles a symbol I've seen in ancient papyrus, the TV antena looking things atop King Pharoah head and at the center is the shape of the shell of an eye and on that plate Olimlah the slave of the prince appears to be the only one with a functional ball that can osay canu sea the opi
