Feel Good Friday!

Red roses

Happppppy Friday!  We made it through yet another week.  2016 is nearing a close, already!!

Today’s quote is from French author, Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr, back in 1853.  The original French verse read:

De leur meilleur côté tâchons de voir les choses:
Vous vous plaignez de voir les rosiers épineux;
Moi je me réjouis et rends grâces aux dieux
Que les épines aient des roses.

Once translated into English:

Let us try to see things from their better side:
You complain about seeing thorny rose bushes;
Me, I rejoice and give thanks to the gods
That thorns have roses.

A little skew in perspective can be a glorious thing!  May you find your roses this weekend, and throughout next week.  ❤
