Everybody is posting what they are thankful for these days. So I thought I would blog about something I am thankful for. If you think it’s flowers, you’re wrong. What I’m thankful for is my husband. One of the things he has always been good at is getting me flowers.
I don’t mean for birthdays or anniversaries, although I have occasionally received them on those dates. I also don’t mean because we fight so much and that’s how he says he’s sorry.
Most of the time I get them — just because.
I had received so many roses by the time we were married that I bought a lamp that I filled with the rose petals. It is pretty big but still seemed to get filled fast.
One of the most memorable flower deliveries was actually a plant. He sent it to me at the pharmacy I was working at and the note attached said — Congratulations on your new job. (My new job being a stay at home mom.) I don’t have that plant anymore, because I’m better at taking care of dead flowers than living plants, but I will always remember it.
Thank you God, for a husband that sends me flowers… just because.
