Snapped this picture while taking a walk around the neighborhood. A single yellow rose, bursting forth next to its buddy the tree. It got me thinking about the meaning of flowers, a yellow rose stands for joy and happiness, and is heavily associated with true friendship.
I've heard it said, a true friend is like a gift from God sent to help us experience heaven on earth. That's certainly how it feels for me, and if you get biblical it says "heaven is entered two by two."
Thanks to all those true friends in our lives, for sharing, supporting and being with us as we journey through our days, making things lighter and happier and filling us with joy, bringing a little bit of heaven in the here and now.
You are the best!
