With the awesome explosion of Spring lately, my kids have renewed their fascination with dandelions.
A few years ago my mom took the kids shopping right before Mothers Day and let them pick out anything they wanted for me. Lila picked out these cute little vases and these days they are constantly filled with the little (wilting) yellow treasures.
I’ve been thinking about these little yellow “weeds” a bit lately.
those little yellow tokens of love
are just weeds,
to the ignorant.
but in the eyes of a child,
they are priceless,
gifts from God
for a loving mother.
