I had a tough week last week. I received some damage assessments after 30 years of celiac. I went home and wanted to discuss them, but found my husband slept already! The next day, I called a couple of friends which couldn't talk. Thank you people on the forum for listening!
As some may know I like to give people flowers around here. **** Someone might be able to make better flowers on the computer, but these are quick and I know how to make them. Well, they look maybe a little like flowers.
Last Friday I went visiting a friend at the nursing home. A flower shop stood just next door and I thought I would get her some. As I approached the shop pondering how, when someone is sick, we bring flowers, but when one suffers from 30 years of celiac, we often don't notice. Inside the shop, I selected a nice little flower arrangement. Another arrangement stood out as being nice, so I picked it to take home with me. Then I got Get Well cards to attach to both. I hoped to get my friend to sign the card on mine and then I could bring it home! At her house, I found she wasn't in sight, so I set the arrangement on the table and walked out.
At home, my children were very interested in who gave us flowers. I said that "Dad's money bought the flowers." I then left the get well card by the flowers and asked the little ones to sign it. They got nearly everyone to sign the card, but I think some were confused who the flowers were for!
Well, I couldn't have picked a better rose and baby breath display myself!
I hope others will find this hilarious as I did.
By the way, I discovered the local flower shop is fairly cheap, if you just buy the flowers without the vase. No, doubt, the money I got with a greeting card will buy some more!
