Sunflower Seeds

For Lauren . . . who loves sunflowers.

Mother, Baby, Moon, Flowers, Silhouettes, Small Child
I recall the day and the hour
I was given my flower,
So small she arrived
That day in July.
She filled a space
And with care and grace, 
And a few mistakes,
We learned together. 
Now she's full grown
With seeds of her own.
My grand-gems and jewels
In her sunflower school.

Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, and forsake not your mother’s teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck.

Proverbs 1:8-9
