Good morning fellow readers! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day so far.
A trip to the supermarket the other day brought such joy to my heart. My boys and I were shopping for some items to perform an experiment with later that day. (I will be posting about that soon!) One of the items we needed to purchase were white flowers. As my big guy and I were choosing which bouquet to buy, an older gentleman was looking in the same bin for flowers. My little guy was looking at this man with a huge smile on his face and the man said hello to him. It was a cute exchange to say the least.
The man was telling me how my boys seemed very happy and how I needed to enjoy these times with them. He then proceeded to say that the bouquet he was buying was for his daughter who is in her 30s. He further explained that he has bought her a bouquet a flowers once a week since she was born. And that he would continue to do it even after she gets married. I thought that was the most amazing thing I had ever heard. I told him that she is very lucky to have him as a father. We then said our farewells and parted ways.
The story that the man told me has stayed with me these past few days. It warms my heart to know that there are daddy’s out there who make their children’s lives feel special. I hope that girl knows how special her father is (I have a feeling she does). I also hope this story put a little smile on your heart. It surely did for me.
What is something special that a parent did for you (or still does) that made you feel special? Comment below!
