Today my wife made two very special floral bouquets and we jumped in the car and drove them down to the elderly home where the kindness touched two people’s lives.
The local paper often has this home listed in obituaries. When we explained that we simply wanted to give these bouquets away, the staff member, Rose, looked at us with bewilderment. We asked her to present them to two people she felt could most use them, like someone without visitors whose day could be made brighter.
When she asked our name we said it was not important, she looked at us again bewildered.
These flowers were grown from a tiny little area we have for a backyard. (40×30 feet). Maybe five bouquets can be grown a year from it. Giving them away really made our hearts smile.
I ride motorcycles, have a few tattoo’s, and here I was carrying flowers! I didn’t mind one bit.
This would be such a nice project for gardening hobbyists to do. Just pick a location where your heart tells you to drop them off. Think of how many lives this would brighten. These elders have helped pave the road for the younger people to live on. Many were in wheelchairs watching the door. Some looked with hope in their eyes that maybe we were their visitors.
Share in this little way and your heart will smile, too!
