One beautiful bloom

Carrying  all of the love

of a parent’s heart.

Who has the harder task, the gardener or the flower? Few would deny that being a parent is hard work.  But perhaps being the child is just as difficult.  One side is trying to learn about the world, while the other side is trying to protect and nuture them in that world.   The flower sees the sun and reaches towards it.  The gardener worries about water and weeds.    Does the flower appreciate the gardener’s efforts or does it just find them frustrating?  Does the gardener lose sight of the bloom’s beauty due to the exhaustion from nourishing it?  Do not forget to appreciate the effort that went into your own “blooming”!
