Mothers Day Gift




On Mothers Day fourteen years ago I was given a tree sort of looked like a long branch, it was a Kwanzan Cherry tree. I had wanted one since I had first seen it in bloom in the town of St James, during a parade. I stood under this tree that held its heavy pink blooms on branches that outstretched over the road. It was magnificent!

I told my family that I would like to get that type of tree and they gave it to me for Mothers Day. A small branch that I knew would grow and share it’s beauty like the tree I had once stood under. Well it’s not as big yet as the one that I stood under, but my tree is still growing, and I look forward to seeing it bloom each year.

However brief a bloom may last, its beauty stays with us for a lifetime, forever fragrant in our minds.
