I told her that if she made her own present instead of buying it, it would be more meaningful for mommy.
She pouted and said:
"But I can't draw well.
I'll make mommy look like a bell!
And the rose I make will not smell
Like those that the bookstore sell"
"Sweetheart, that's exactly why mommy would love your gift.
A rose that is crafted by the very fingers of the one she had given birth to, each petal shaped and painted with the same care that she gave to you as she
fed you when you were hungry,
comforted you when you were sad,
nursed you when you were sick,
and protected you when you were scared.
And your rose will be as imperfect as she may have been,
losing her temper when you were naughty,
yelling at you when you couldn't do your homework,
oversleeping when she was tired out,
and leaving you in front of the TV when she was busy.
So fill your rose, with its flaws, to the brink with your love,
and tell mommy that you understand, appreciate and care
about the unconditional love she has given to you.
That would make it the most precious gift that your mommy would love."
