A Mother's Day Poem



A Mom ...
tends her garden
of young growing flowers
through long sunny days
and a few teary hours ...

She knows in her heart
just what every plant needs,
how to grow a bright dream
from the smallest of seeds ...

Life's garden is blessed
by a Mom's loving touch,
and that's why we cherish
her warm ways so much.

1-800-Flowers Giveaway



Yesterday there was a knock on the back door, and when I opened it, a man was standing there with a huge vase of roses from 1-800-flowers.com. I had been "Spotted" in their 2nd annual Spot a Mom campaign as a "Green Thumb Mom." As part of this honor, I not only received the lovely roses but also a book called "Celebrating Mom, share, remember, cherish" by Jim McCann, the Founder and CEO of 1-800-flowers.
