The world is a garden. Our lives are the flowers; we are first planted firmly in the ground. We are nurtured and loved by the hands that water us. Then we, the flowers, grow together. We each learn from our mistakes, growing new leaves, allowing us to stand a little taller every day. Even when the sun doesn’t shine down upon our garden, we each are still uniquely beautiful and different, and we must continue to grow to someday be the bright blossoms we always wanted to be.
