When we bought our home four years ago the garden was so overgrown and neglected. We had to clear away MANY weeds to discover the beauty that was waiting underneath! Now we can see the fruits of our labour. The lilacs, lilies and roses spoil us with their fragrant blossoms.
As I watch our boys play in the yard, surrounded by our gardens, I know the task of raising them will require much hard work. I hope and pray they will never feel neglected, that I can pluck the weeds that threaten to hide their beauty, and discover exactly who they are meant to be.
I can already see the fragrance and colour my little men bring to their world, nurtured by those who love them.
