A Few Visitor Comments

I love it, like a rose while we'll being to careful watching for thorns,we've been to busy to enjoy something as simply as the beauty of the rose, Like life
Is this not the message we all need to hear.

Roses and Thorns

The things that life consist of
includes both roses and thorns.

Some claims to have more briars
from the very day they were born.

There are those who enjoy roses,
whose life blossoms day after day.

They have not yet reached the thorns
that mark their path along the way.

For most, there are some good and bad
which can be expected by everyone.

So be thankful for the smallest rose
and place less emphasis on the thorns
