“I made garlands of yellow posies in childhood.
All too soon, my mother took me to buy my first bra. Slyly that night, with tiny, skillful stitches, she altered it. The next day, I decorated my sprouting breasts with embroidered daisies.
Nowadays, I grow luscious gardens of multicolored flowers in the loam of my body.”
This is my little 55 word story I wrote in honor of my mom buying my first bra. Celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month – buy flowers, maybe daisies, for the women in your life – mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, coworkers, and anyone else.
