Rose by Austin of Sundrip Journals

Every rose has its thorn but sunflowers give beauty unconditionally.

Mama says that just because she loves sunflowers but I like roses too. I can spot them a mile away. I spot them in commercials, on products in the store, on billboards and anywhere else. We found some in the store yesterday.

Yesterday we mailed out cards to friends. That was really fun. Mama says we can do that more often if we want to so she got some stamps for us. We mailed one to Keepers and to Beauty and to our friend JAGA too. I can't wait for them to get their card. That was fun.

And we went to get Chinese food the other day but that time it wasn't such a great day. The people rushed us out of there but I still liked the squid and the crab legs and shrimp. They have all kinds of seafood. And they have great sweets too. They have espresso cake and chess pie and pineapple cake and they even have rice crispy treats. I hope we go there again. I like the crab legs. Blossom wouldn't eat the frog legs because she says she likes frogs too much. I like them too but I try not to think about them hopping around when I'm eating them.

So this is the rose I made for Mama. I suppose Blossom will see it too but she might not like it because it doesn't look perfect. She will see only what I did wrong on the picture and then I'll just feel stupid so I might not show it to her at all. How come someone can only see a flaw stand out from something that might have other stuff than mistakes to offer? I don't understand it.
