Dear Mary,

A good friend sent me one of your cards, and I explored your web site,
because the card really came at a time when I needed it the most.

I just had to write and tell you about your song!  It's one of the most
beautiful I have ever heard!  I have played it non stop today, and sent
it to nearly everyone I know!

The reason it touched me so?  I found out a few months ago that I have
terminal Hepatitis C, and there is no cure for this disease.  I live in
North Carolina......half a world away from you........but I am raising
my grandson who is 10.  He had to be told that his Nana might not be 
around to see him "all growed up".  It wasn't but a few days later that
he and his buddy went to a store.  He came home with the saddest rose 
bush I have ever seen.....the last of the summer fare at Walmarts, and
he had spent his allowance on that rose bush.  I went down the road and
got a bucket of horse manuer, and we planted the bush together in the 
front of the house where there is lots of sun.  Jason said to me as we
stood there looking at it, "Nana, what color do you think its going to 
be in the spring?"  Since there were no tags on the thing, I said:
"Honey, I don't know, but whatever the color is, it will be beautiful
because God created it, and He will help it grow."  He said, "Can I
name the rose Nana?"  I said, "Sure thing, honey!"  That"s when he 
said: "I'm going to call it 'Nana's Rose', because it will live forever,
and when I see it, you will always be here."

I haven't told anyone this story, because I get a huge lump and am 
reduced to tears when I even think about it........about my little 
man who found a rose.........that no one wanted, and brought it home.

I thank you Mary, from the bottom of my heart for your song!  It has
blessed me in a way you couldn't possibly imagine.

Sincerely,
Nana Judi

A ROSE
There was a man who found a rose,
among the weeds beside the road.
twas just dried twigs and all alone.
He dug it up and took it home...

And there the man .. He pruned it back.
He nurtured gently.. It did not lack
for warmth and care..for anything...
and within the rose grew hope for spring.

There was a man.  He found a rose
among the thorns...along life's road.
'twas almost dead and all alone.
It touched his heart. He took it home.

And then one day...He saw some green,
down by the base...Oh awsome thing.
He laughed aloud...His heart did sing.
and then that rose...It bloomed in Spring.
 
And then one day there was some green
And then the rose bloomed in the Spring.
