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 its 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 rain came,
She protected me enough-
But not too much because 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
That will last a lifetime long.

I am my mother’s garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
Reflected back from me.~ Author Unknown

This watercolor was inspired by my son’s old baby shoes. He is now a young man with a son of his own, and I had recently made him a gift of these shoes. When I was a young child, many parents had baby shoes bronzed as a family keepsake. Even though these are not bronzed, they are in reasonably good condition and look almost the same as the day my son wore them. They have not aged as much as we have. I cannot imagine where all the years have gone when I look at them. Indeed they hold some precious memories. Since Mother’s Day is just around the corner, this painting and poem are my effort to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all the other moms out there!!!
