When a gardener plants a seed, she waters it with love, fertilizes it with hope, and tends it with care.
When the seed sprouts, the gardener is happy.
While the plant grows the gardener is filled with optimism.
When the plant pushes it’s first flower from the stem, the gardener is ecstatic.
Because there is nothing like seeing a seed grow into a beautiful flower and knowing that you are partially responsible for it’s beauty.
That first flower is a joy indeed.
