The Carrot Seed

The Carrot Seed is one of my favorite stories. I thought about the seeds you planted in my heart. You believed in me, Mother. You even pulled up weeds that I did not necessarily want pulled. I liked the company I had with some of those weeds.

Thank you, Mother, for nourishing those seeds. You watered them. Though as to water, you knew I preferred flavored drinks.

You took good care of me. You believed in me. I want to thank you for that. Good things have come from the seeds you planted. Thank you for planting those seeds in my heart.
