Standing on the hillside awaiting an atypical child's journey into a safe adulthood.

Each year my garden is filled
   with Impatiens in hues of 
       pink, and red, and orange
       that I admire in their beauty
       of remaining rooted into the earth
          soaking up the rainwater
          sipping the morning dew
          facing the sun

Each day my garden is filled
    with impatience in behavior hues
         watching the upward growth
         the beauty of longterm gain
            versus a behavior snapshot

Seeing my daughter
    reach new understanding of
          who she is
          and who she can be

Watching her soak up
     reign water of self discipline
     to protect her heart and soul

Listening to her share
     her schedule and to do list
     that provide her a safe path
         for her day

Watching as she turns
      herself around
          her heart, 
              her soul,
                   her mind.

To reach out
       to the Son
Who becomes
      her hope in a future
      her faith that her past
           can remain her past
and that she can use
       her experiences as
       a testimony to Life!

My Happy Mother's Day
has been many years
       in becoming
