My colleague brought me an array of gorgeous spring flowers last week. I was struck by the kindness of this because it was completely unexpected.
As I was sitting in my office, she popped in and set the flowers on the desk. The conversation went like this:
I said to her, “oh pretty!”
“Those are for you!” She said.
“Wait, what? Why?” I had asked with surprise.
“Because you are so wonderful!” She replied.
“What? Why?” Again to my surprise, I called out to her as she walked to her office. She didn’t reply.
I yelled out so she could hear me, “THANK YOU!“
“YOU’RE WELCOME!” she called back.
A sweet gesture with no given reason. I hadn’t done anything special.
I brought my flowers home to enjoy them on my patio. I tried to capture the yellow pansies as the rain had come and gone so much that week, I had to draw them and bring the sunshine of those happy flowers indoors.
I hope there is someone in your life that brings sunshine to your day. We all need a dose of sunshine in our lives!
