I found this little poem today while searching "Mother's Day Quotes" for a project I was working on.
I thought it represented exactly what my mother is to me, and what I hope to be as a mother for my own three children. Gardening is such a great metaphor for what we do as mothers... Nurturing and Loving, Correcting and Pruning, Water and Sunshine, our Tears and our Smiles. As I reflect on the last 13 years of my life as a mother, I can only hope and pray that I am doing as good a job with my little blossoms as my mother has done with me! A legacy, indeed!!
