We came across this charming compilation of tiny love stories from the crowdsourcing website, Makes Me Think. Admittedly, these snippets about love and kindness got a handful of “Awww,” from us.
Of course, our favorites are stories shared by ordinary people of ordinary moments made extraordinary through the beauty of flowers. We hope you like them too.
Here they are:
52 Flower Deliveries Until Afghanistan Brings Me Home
“Today, I walked up to the door of my office (I’m a florist) at 7 AM to find a uniformed Army soldier standing out front waiting. He was on his way to the airport to go to Afghanistan for a year. He said, “I usually bring home a bouquet of flowers for my wife every Friday and I don’t want to let her down when I’m away.” He then placed an order for 52 Friday afternoon deliveries of flowers to his wife’s office and asked me to schedule one for each week until he returns. I gave him a 50% discount because it made my day to see something so sweet.”
A Love That Is Wild and Free
“Today is our 10th anniversary, but since my husband and I are both recently unemployed we agreed not to get each other any gifts. When I woke up this morning, my husband was already up. I walked downstairs to find beautiful wildflowers brilliantly arranged all over the house. There must be 400 flowers total and he didn’t spend a dime.”
Every Day Deserves Flowers Because Every Day with You Is Special
"Today, I was driving home with my grandfather when he suddenly made a U-turn and said, “I forgot to get your grandmother a bouquet of flowers. I’ll pick up one from the florist at the corner down here. It’ll only take a second.” “What’s so special about today that you have to buy her flowers?” I asked. “There’s nothing specifically special about today,” my grandfather said. “Every day is special. Your grandmother loves flowers. They put a smile on her face.”
Of all the 356 days of the year, as a popular song puts it, “What we should remember in all the push and shove is Christmas is a time to love.”
