roses and thorns

"Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns. I am thankful thorns have roses."
--Alphone Karr

I read this tonight as I ate a delicious peanut butter and toffee truffle. It made me smile, and I thought I should share it. Too often we worry about the thorns. We make them seem bigger than what they really are. But I too am thankful thorns have roses.
