Friendship's Flower

Life is like a garden
And friendship like a flower,
That blooms and grows in beauty
With the sunshine and the shower...

And lovely are the blossoms
That are tended with great care,
By those who work unselfishly
To make the place more fair...

And, like the garden blossoms,
Friendship’s flower grows more sweet
When watched and tended carefully
By those we know and meet.

And, if the seed of friendship
Is planted deep and true
And watched with understanding,
Friendship’s flower will bloom for you.
~Helen Steiner Rice

You may have noticed that I really enjoy the poems and words of Helen Steiner Rice. I have used them often, in my posts. :) I got to see my sister well as littlest Eloise. If you haven't, you should go see this short video of her HERE. She's too sweet! :) 

I have much I would love to share...but a headache has set in and I need to rest it for a bit. I hope you are each enjoying your week. I enjoy all the comments and emails I receive from you...*thank-you*! Your kind words, love and encouragement are such a gift to me! I look forward to writing more and having new photos to share, soon!
