Chapter 3, Page 8, Book 19

Remember that children, marriage and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

H. Jackson Brown

March 8 - be caring

Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.

Anthony J. D’Angelo

To have a good relationship with others we must be nurturing and caring. Much like a plant needs water, love and attention so do human beings. A relationship cannot survive on its own. If you care, you can make a difference.

Friends are like flowers in the garden of life. They grow and they bloom.

If you nurture something such as a young child or a young plant, you take care of it while it is growing and developing. You encourage them and help them to flourish. And how you let your relationships flow and grow has a big impact on the happiness both in your life and the lives of people you care for.

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and wrong.  Sometime in life you will have been all of these. 

George Washington Carver

You picked the BEST quote to end with. Geo. W CArver said it just right, and that is true We are or will be all phases of life. GOOD STUFF!

That is a great first quote you shared here, Ma. Children, flowers, and marriage indeed need to be nurtured and lovingly taken care of. Same too with children as we are raising them. They need all the care, love, and encouragement we can give them.



caring about somebody can make all the difference in both your lives. "Much like a plant needs water, love and attention so do human beings. "
