…the universe (and a kind florist) restored my day.
I was having a rough start to my Sunday. I had been at work and it just didn’t go as planned. I left a comfy bed, my pup, and my dude to be there to have a disappointing and disconcerting few hours. I parked in a place I don’t normally park. I got out of my car and saw a couple walking away with some pretty pink flowers (pink is my color). I noticed they were talking to someone about a flower shop. I saw flowers in a bin and though they are so pretty and she must be selling them. I planned to ask her how much they were, they were so lovely and something I knew I needed, but she was walking away. I thought maybe there is a venmo option on the bin of lovely flowers. When I reached the bin it said ‘Flowers for free. Leftover from the week from a local florist.’ It didn’t have a Venmo or even which Florist. It was a completely selfless act. Instead of getting rid of the flowers or selling them for half price or something, she put them into the world to make peoples day. It certainly made mine. I am looking at them in my kitchen and not only do they make me smile, but they restore my faith in folks and the universe in general. So to the mystery florist in North Park, if you ever happen to read this, know that your act of kindness really made a difference to me. Know how much I appreciate it. I hope I can put the same love back into the world a little bit.
