I was feeling sad because of my recent loss (read this post if you missed the tribute to my Dad). My husband knew this and came back home one afternoon with something to cheer me up:
He bought these beautiful lilac blooms instead of cut flowers because “they represent living things”. The beauty of these flowers remind me everyday that life is still beautiful; and that I have a wonderful husband who cares.
When I look at them now, I am reminded of two things:
- My dad, who enjoyed the beauty of life.
- My husband, who cares about me enough to want to cheer me up when I am sad.
I enjoy receiving flowers as they bring beauty and life into the home. I know that I will enjoy these blooms for a long time to come.
Do you enjoy receiving flowers?
