Feeling a bit overwhelmed by back pain, fear of back not getting better and life in general. But thank goodness for roses. I am really enjoying their fragrant blooms. Back pain and off kilter gait have made me move slower and actually stop to smell them more often this year. (Although I hate to find positive things about pain and illness I suppose it comes with the territory.)
I have made my own flower essence water to drink to cheer me. I just plop lush fresh roses into my water. Roses actually to help heal the heart, they have been used for thousands of years so I might as well try it. The water tastes magnificent and the rose is soft and pleasing against my nose when I drink.
