But in herself alone she is more important than all the hundreds of you other roses: because it is she that I have watered

On our 15th anniversary, George gave me a small, potted rose bush with miniature salmon-colored blooms. When it outgrew the pot, he transplanted it to the corner of the house, where it took root and flourished. A nice metaphor for our marriage. In four days we celebrate our 29th.
