After the Rain...

Every spirit builds itself a house, and beyond its house a world, and beyond its world a heaven. Know then that world exists for you.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I took this picture a few days ago after a big rain.

I planted this lavender rose bush last week right in front of where John use to park. When he opened his door that would have been the first thing he saw.

Thank you all for the comments... You comfort my heart. I will get back to everyone in a day or two. I have been really busy.
