On Monday I purchased sunflowers and put them in a glass jar on the kitchen table. The flowers reminded me of a garden in one of my children's preschools years ago. The 3-year-olds planted sunflower seeds, watered them and watched as the flowers grew higher than the garden wall.
The preschool teacher instructed the children, "Big dreams start small, but with sunlight, water, good soil and love, they grow big." It seemed a simple lesson, but one worth revisiting.
