“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened. ~Dr. Seuss

Pink Rose, Wendy Lane Wright

Beanie, you must be a rose!


Recently, our life-long friend, Beanie, who baby sat three generations of my family, underwent Hospice Care.  This strong lady full of life, smiles, laughter, compassion and great empathy, now lay helplessly.  Her body ravaged with cancer.


With wide resolute eyes, Beanie looked at me and asked, “Why me Wendy?  I go to church, and I live my life by always giving to others.  I have always done the right thing. “


I leaned in closer to her and held her hand.  I gently smiled as my throat constricted, and tears flowed down my face.  Beanie, you are such a rare and beautiful soul-one in humanity.


I am inspired by the flowers in my garden.  By tending to them, they grow and blossom.  A symbol of our relationship I hold dear to my heart.


Beanie, you are like a vibrant rose in full bloom with soft and fragile pedals. I tend to the roses in my garden as they grow and blossom.  I cut a handful of my best flowers to bring into my home and enjoy.


Beanie, you must be a rose!

This spring, I will plant a rosebush outside my front door in your honor.
