I started thinking one morning, soon this bud with the help of the sun, rich dirt, my husband’s watering and nurturing, will become a beautiful bloom. As Mother’s Day approached, I felt that my two children are my two blooms.

    As a parent, I think it is my duty to attend to the nurturing of these two young minds.

    I do believe summer has arrived, with the weatherman predicting the temperature reaching near or breaking the record for the May 6 by possibly reaching 90 degrees. I am ready for warm weather. This winter has been miserable for both of us, even though we didn’t have to be outside as many were, I love to see the green grass and leaves on the trees and the flowers blooming.
