A couple of the meanings of the tulip are beautiful eyes and perfect lover. I chose these two representations of the tulip for Mother’s Day and wrote the above poem to accompany the image of the tulip. Being a mother is the most challenging yet the most rewarding role a woman can ever have. I hope my words and image honor all mothers, near and far.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the women in my life who have served as a mother figure, who have inspired me, who have encouraged me, who have supported me, and who have helped me become the woman I am today. I appreciate your sacrifices of love, of time and of self, for me, as well as, for all people in your lives.
