She'd never been the nurturing type
and so it took a lot of faith for her to
drop the seeds into the ground, 
cover them with dirt
and wait for them to grow.

She would often get into a fight 
with the garden hose, throw it down 
and stomp away when  
it refused to acquiesce
to her demands to straighten up.

All she needed was someone 
with a little patience
to tell her she would be 
more successful if she'd only
turn the water off.

She didn't work well under pressure.

This one was very good too, Tracy. Quite the hidden talent to turn a phrase. Does this mean that Kathy is coming to visit?? Or just teasing?
