Is it just me or do warm weather, light breezy winds and springtime flowers bring out the best in people? Earlier this week I went to teach my weekly private English lessons. I was almost at the door when I was handed these.
“Someone gave them to me yesterday,” the mom told me. “And I want to share them with you.”
I left with half of a bouquet in spite of my protests.
There is something about receiving flowers that lifts my spirits. Before her gift I had felt tired and somewhat overworked. However, I happily floated out to my car and smiled proudly at the young girl who looked quizzically at my overflowing arms filled with flowers and leaves. I showed them off when I arrived home, and carefully arranged them into an antique vase. And aren’t they lovely?
They made my day.
Happy LT, everyone!
