Fly free little bird; Remember the lessons of the flowers

Stretching and flapping her strong wings
this is the eve of our youngest bird
preparing to fly far from the nest.
Across the country
the hallowed halls of law are ready to take our bird
on her chosen path; her next life steps.

I know that as she embarks
on this  journey that our little bird will
take with her the lessons from the flowers.
She will persevere and grow
Silently displaying her inner beauty and strength
She will reach towards the sun, hold fast during storms
and live life fully in bloom.

Fly free little bird. Enjoy, and remember the lessons from the flowers.

    Plus, I truly believe that we will talk more with her living in a different state then when she is here.
    I hope you are feeling well and are enjoying those beautiful ocean sunsets as much as you can. ❤️

  3. Sometimes, we can only hope, and pray, that our children will remember the values we’d, instilled in them when they were young children, but there’s no way we can, be certain that what we taught them when they were younger will stick, we can, only hope, and pray, that they had…
