Did you know yourself in childhood? The kid pulls his hands to you, he is so trusting and benevolent, and you answer him the same. I want to rejoice and smile, forget all the difficulties of life, feel confident and happy. You take the baby in your arms, and it turns into a flower in your palms, it is a beautiful flower of childhood, and you carry it with you through life. Someone he is very deep in the soul, and someone often sees him in a dream, someone has a modest, inconspicuous flower, and someone has a bright, stormy, memorable. They are all good, the flowers of our childhood. And if it will be difficult for you, you will not be able to find an answer to some question, remember the child who gave you the flower of childhood in her palms, and I hope that this will help you to feel like a little naive, happy child, and he will tell you exactly how to feel happy.

The fabric is declared the glade of the garden to be planted with flowers. All participants in turn go out and attach their flower.

Notice that, even though there are many flowers, there was enough space for everyone, each took only his own, the one he chose. To see, surrounded by what are different, different from others grows yours. But there is also a general – someone has a coloring, someone has a size or shape of leaves. And all flowers, without exception, need the sun and attention. This clearing symbolizes that the soul of each teacher is always full of beautiful flowers.
