Walking in the Rose Garden
Today I went on a walk with my friend Emily. We did a loop around Phinney Ridge through the Woodlawn Park Rose Garden. After years of visiting the garden, I was reminded (once again) of the peace that it brings me. Even though it was a cold and damp January morning, I felt calmer, happier, and more alive after walking through it. It made me think of the beautiful, sunny Spring and Summer days when the roses are in full bloom, and all I have to look forward to. I am grateful for "free" gifts like this in my life.
