October Muse Day: Motherhood

Born from my desire to nurture and love
I protect you - I nourish you
Hoping you’ll grow strong and stay healthy
I brag about how beautiful you are to all my friends
They know I am biased but when I show them your pictures
They say you are pretty, too.
Maybe they are just being nice
I don’t care
At night I think about what is next for you
I think of how you will grow and change over time and
I get excited.
It’s exactly like they say, hard work, but so worth it
My garden, my love child
Please visit Carolyn Gail at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago where she hosts Garden Bloggers Muse Day on the 1st of every month.
