My Mother Kept A Garden

My Mother kept a garden.
A garden of the heart;
She planted all the good things,
That gave my life it's 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 rains came,
She protected me enough;
But not too much, 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
To last my whole life long.

I am my Mother's garden,
I am her legacy.
And I hope today she feels the love,
Reflected back from me.

Dorothy was one of the very bright spots of my job.  Even though we lived on different coasts, it never felt like such a huge distance between us.  She and I shared so many fun and happy things in our lives for many years. I will always think of you with a big smile my dear friend. Heaven sure is a much happier/better place now with you there.  Missing you......Katey
