Yes! ANOTHER heavenly gift...


I wrote a Chicken Soup for the Soul story 20 years ago about a heavenly inspired gift I received, per the pact my late best friend and I made right before she passed away.

Last week the temperature dropped to 11 degrees; we had a hard freeze and frigid wind chills.
All of my flowers wilted, shriveled, and hung limp in their pots. Except this delicate little ONE which is still thriving. I believe it is  this year's gift from Rose. I have received a flower every year in winter.

Read the original story about her promise of an annual gift to me. Tell me what you believe.

I remember your story about Rose. She's remembering you again with this flower. Signs like this are so uplifting.

Hi Linda...Ohhhhh, DEFINITELY Rose. What a lovely gift from a precious friend, now in the other realm of life. I remember the original story, too. THanks so much for your visit and comment. I have been sick but feel MUCH better today. Have a good day yourself! Susan
