A Rose

My Mother  sent this picture to me and my sisters for Mother's Day.
This beautiful rose is out of her flower garden.

I began thinking of how I could give back something
 that meant as much to her
as that rose meant to me.
I realized that I could not give back more than she has give to me in life.

Then I saw this rose garden as I was riding down the highway.
But when I saw this garden I thought of all that this represents.
So Mom, I just wanted you to know that you have given me much more than one single rose.
You gave me a rose garden.

A mother blesses her children,

Caring for them,
Tending them,
Nurturing them,
Watching them,
Like roses in her garden.


Today I am thankful Mother!
