Beautiful! I love how you worked the song lyrics in to your touching story.

This is a story that "Texas" back through some deep personal and historic details. As an Aussie whose only experience of Texas is Houston airport's transit lounge, I found it very interesting. Well done
I married a girl from Texas, and lived there in places for twelve years.

I wanted to write about my wife and the first yellow rose I gave her their when I was only nineteen.

You brought memories back for me.

I don't dare tell my wife I blew it on this challenge. I only pray I can tell our story in color.

Thanks for sharing yours. You blessed this old Yankee!

I enjoyed this. Over 50 years ago one of my cousins moved to Texas and lived the rest of his life there. I've never been but, "The Yellow Rose of Texas" has always been one of my favorite songs.
