This rose bush grows beside my garage... blooming faithfully from spring until fall each year, BLESSING me one bud at a time. But the biggest reward in the blooming of this beautiful flower is the reminder of the precious student that gave it to me, as an end of the year gift, many years ago. Each time I see a new bud, or cut a flower for an indoor vase... I think of this young man, say a prayer for him, and thank God that he was in my kindergarten classroom. It is definitely a gift that keeps on giving, year after year, bloom after bloom. I even dry the petals to use for potpourri giving me a breath of spring throughout the long winter months. If you are thinking of a memorable gift to give a teacher or anyone special in your life, perhaps a rose bush would be an excellent choice... BLESSING someones life for many years to come.
