When unwrapping joy. . .

The very best gifts in the world
are unwrapped
slowly.

One leaf, one petal, one stem at a time.

And one forgotten bit of birdseed -
if given the chance - will grow
in unexpected places.


Sometimes I forget that only God can unwrap life petals,
And I am impatient with my hair
growing so slow!

But when the sun paints a portrait
nothing can ever hurry
its' gold.

Who am I - to rush and wish?
Both the sun and rain will bring to bloom
in perfect time -

A life - A gift!

You are beautiful, my sweet girl - hair or no hair! I like the pretty scarf - it matches your eyes. Remember that patience is also gift, a flower, one the grows the more slowly when you most want it to hurry. I love you!
Hugs,
Mommy
