My Mother Kept a Garden

My childrens "day mom" gave me the following poem today.  She is so sweet.

Grab your tissues

My mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart.

She planted all the good things
that gave my life a start.

She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self esteem...

And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough-

But not too much because she knew
I'd need to stand up strong and tough.

Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong -

Markers for my pathway,
that will last a lifetime long.

I am my Mothers garden.

I am her legacy-
and I hope today she feels the love
reflecting back from me.

Told you to grab the tissues. Little things like this mean the most to me.
