This was given to me today, May 9, 2010, by my almost 18 year old son.
The Lily Pad: a stepping stone: a brief respite from treacherous waters.
The Closed Bud: beautiful but not yet fulfilled: a hint of what’s yet to come.
The Carnation: incredible beauty that is not kept but instead given: the will to share.
To me you are a lily pad, always there to comfort me, a piece of love amongst the world.
I am your bud, you nurture me and care for me so that I may bloom.
To all you are the carnation; sharing your motherly love.
Happy Mother’s Day
