My precious child. Yes you have grown, but to us you will always be as a child. Your perceptions have always been so innocent, new, and fresh. You look upon life as if it were a flower in bloom and then you are sad when the blossom of the moment fades. Remember that there are other flowers, other gardens, other worlds of beauty and they will all come and go in their own time. The garden of your life is still yet to blossom in its fullness. Do not focus on the little buds which have come and gone. Focus instead on the color and variety and fragrance which is unique to you. Remember that as each flower blooms and is gone, two more will take its place. There is more to come sweet one. Focus on the growing parts of your life and you will thus allow ALL parts of yourself to unfold.
