A White Rose from Daily Mass

At daily mass today, I was blessed to receive this beautiful white rose.

I've blogged previously about this elderly woman who attends daily mass and always brings with her a rose to give out to someone special.  She must pick them from her garden, I would imagine.  But how she picks her people, I have no idea.  :)

Often, she'll place it on a person's pew when they get up to receive Communion.  When the person returns to their seat, there is this fragrant beauty there to make them smile.

I was the lucky recipient today.  When mass ended and the church cleared, I stayed behind to pray and sniff this lovely rose.

When I got home, I put it in a little vase and placed it on a shelf in the kitchen.  :)
