Sometimes even the best of plans fall apart. Circumstances separated our family this Thanksgiving day. Part of us in Tennessee, and part in Alabama. While I miss the delicious food from the best cooks in Nashville, I have learned in this life to bloom where your planted, no matter what the circumstances. I took my morning garden walk and found the most beautiful bloom of a new rose in my garden. ‘Ronald Reagan’ hybrid tea is a lovely red with a white reverse. It even has a wonderful fragrance! I bought this rose for a couple of reasons:
1. It’s a beautiful rose.
2. In 1986, it was President Reagan who proclaimed the rose our “National Floral Emblem “.
3. I have always held President Reagan in very high regard.
Having just recently planted this rose, I am glad that it too has adopted my philosophy of “Blooming Where Were Planted”
May God’s richest blessings overtake you this Thanksgiving
