I am still enjoying being The Flower Lady. As you can see today, I had stacks of boxes and bags of beautiful flowers. Yesterday, 35 bouquets went to the residents of Harlee Manor, to toll collectors at two different turnpike exits, a man who held a door open for me at the Sunoco mini-mart, to a young man in a store, and 50 bouquets went to grateful residents of a Rehab in Malvern.
I went to my PO Box today and was delighted to find 8 white envelopes, in a variety of sizes……with a return address from Kathy in Florida. A little pink post-it note said,” Saw your request for cards for your Aunt Anne on Blaine Greenfield’s weekly update newsetter.”
I am just so touched that this kind lady purchased beautiful greeting cards, wrote a handwritten message in each……I HOPE THIS CARD BRIGHTENS YOUR DAY! and on another: I HOPE THIS CARD BRINGS A SMILE TO YOUR DAY! And sentiments on the cards said: You are in my heart. Sending you a big hug. The cards have pictures of cute polar bears, little children hugging each other.
And so the cards brightened the day for Auntie Anne and the other residents who get to open the cards from compassionate strangers – from all over the country. Thank you, Kathy B. for going way out of your way and to such expense to give a gift of love to Auntie Anne. Your cards touched her heart! And mine too.
