Is the Dandelion an obnoxious weed
Is it a flower preferred by Mothers everywhere?
Mothers all over this country have likely experienced, the joy
These flowers are usually delivered in a the clutches of a little hand!
Those little hands are a bit sticky and covered in dirt.
The aroma of these little yellow buttons smells a bit pungent.
But the smile that spreads across these little faces, as they deliver them!
~I have always chosen to think of these little flowers as a ray of sunshine~
To see a lawn that carries no dandelions, may be a big achievement
For a master gardener in his profession!
No obnoxious weeds growing in their lush grass!
But as we all know beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.
I have loved every dandelion that has ever been presented to me;
And all the memories and love that were presented in the gift and the giver!
Mary Mary how does your garden grow?
What are you cultivating, what seeds are you tenderly planting?
I will tell you this;
Whatever you plant this season, you will harvest!
Now is the time to break up the fallow ground;
I have heard so many statements from people that have said things like;
I wish I had raised my children differently
I wish I had never gotten divorced
I wish I had more children
I wish I had been kinder to my family
I wish I had loved them more deeply
I wish I had more faith...
Accept the love offerings and the olive leaf;
One day I believe the Lord will ask us this
"How well did you love one another"
I choose to think of dandelions as a lovely flower;
Not an obnoxious weed...
Tell me how much these yellow buttons have meant to you!
