My friend Fred Storck surprised me with another delivery of his beautiful home-grown roses today. Too gorgeous for words! I hope someday I'm half as kind and thoughtful as he is--he grows many varieties and delivers them to people all over the Kansas City area just to brighten their day. And they get better every day!
Another thing that brightens my day: all the beautifully-colored fall leaves. It's just starting to get really pretty around here. No matter how many autumns I experience, I will never lose my sense of wonder and appreciation for it.
