Roses -- how could anyone smell a rose, and not give thanks to a Creator who is superlative in every way to humans? Everything was given to us freely...and lovingly, and everything was made FOR us by someone who knew what we would love.
Simply surrounding yourself with any color of fresh roses – e.g. in your garden, in a vase, or in a bathtub filled with rose petals – can help you to forgive yourself, approve of yourself, cut yourself a little slack, let yourself off the proverbial hook, and generally love yourself more. - from The Magic of Flowers
