Daily Graces Return #444

I found this photo of some of the roses from my California garden. It was also nice yet bittersweet to see the sweet vase I had them in. I had a wonderful collection of vases I loved using for my roses and other flowers. I am looking forward to the lovely flower gardens we will begin getting planted in our Oregon garden in the next few weeks. I love gardens!! Will need to begin a new vase collection…

It has been over two years since we lost our home of 30 years to wildfire. Yet the loss sometimes feels as fresh as when it happened. It was the home where we raised our children and where in the last year or so we were there was also filled with remnants of our parents’ homes and earlier ancestors as well. People say “it is just stuff”, but it is much more than that. It is one’s history- encompassing not only ancestors, but the marking of our children’s lives in photos and keepsakes, and our own.
