A home schooling mother with three daughters between the ages of twelve and sixteen must be allowed the privilege of beginning to think about the years when her children will be graduated from school and begin to build a life for themselves outside the family home.
Perhaps somewhere between the years of children and grandchildren she would find time to explore dreams and ideas she had carefully kept within herself. At least she hoped so.
One of her dreams began to bud slowly. Growing within her; swelling her stomach. Her chief among dreams, it would cause her to lay down every other dream for a long while. It seemed she would continue with her other dreams surrounded by little people.
Others were confused by her current state. To them it seemed somewhat more of a nightmare rather than a sweet dream, and yet it continued to grow. Just the thought brought joy and expectation to her family.
On Mother’s day the dream finally bloomed, after nine months of development and five hours of labour, the flower unfurled into beautiful little Raelee Rose.
