Happy Mother’s Day to you all. The moms who are additional moms, Bonus Moms, Moms to 4 legged and 2 legged kids. Yesterday I went to the farmers market. We wanted to get flowers for Jim’s bonus mom, and me too. They are beautiful flowers and sell out fast. So we made sure we got there early knowing others will be wanting flowers too. And it was indeed crowded. But we waited in line. Mind you, there are two flower sellers to chose from. We chose the line that had more flowers. Hoping we would get to the front before they ran out. Then an Amy thought came to me. I’m going to buy an extra bunch and give it to the last person in line. I’m just so sure they will stand in line for at least a half hour and not get any flowers. Now truthfully I’d been thinking of something, anything to do as a pass it forward and had a few ideas, but nothing special that spoke to me.
Until I was standing in line. Boom , feel good idea, heart instantly gets bigger by 2 sizes. I wasn’t sure we would even get flowers. As we get closer and closer to the front, I’m certain I shouldn’t purchase 3, thinking there should be a limit today for each person since there’s so many people in line and not a ton of flowers. We make it to the front, and yes, purchase 3 bouquets. I’m so happy I’m giddy and so excited I have one to give away. As I walk to the end of the now even longer line. I see the last person is a man. Dang it , I really hoped to give these flowers to a woman. Luckily for me a woman was right there, waiting in line with here young cutie pie daughter. So I told her these flowers are for you and handed them to her. I told her Happy Mothers Day, Happy Saturday, have a great day. She was speechless, but her smile was large and loud. She said she didn’t know what to say. Thank you. What a moment. Jim was so proud of me too. He said to see that moment unfold was priceless. What a great way to start the day. Now, I don’t get to give flowers to my mom on Mother’s Day or any other day. But I can sure give flowers to another mother every year on Mother’s Day, just to see that smile. Seems so simple. Thank you Amy for the idea, it meant so much to me. I feel you my friend. Hope your Mothers Day was special too. you know you’re special to all of us. I love you friend.
