I went outside early this morning to take pictures of the roses arching over my back sidewalk. When I came in and uploaded to the computer I discovered a miracle. One of the roses is a star.
I waited as long as I could and then called Jen before 9 AM on a Saturday morning. My first question was "Are you up?" Then, "Are you at the computer?" She was just booting and I could hardly wait for her to get to my blog so she could see the picture of the rosebud star. She has a higher quality camera than I do and is very good at taking pictures so she abandoned her family and came out with camera and accessories and took more pictures of the rose and other plants growing over at Grandma's. Then we spent time talking about a number of things with my parents (her grandparents) and her mother (who lives there, too). It is so nice to have family close together. Even if we don't spend a lot of time together we always know someone is there.
