Today a bouquet of flowers was delivered to me at work. These flowers to be exact:
I wasn’t expecting them. It’s not my birthday or an anniversary of any sort, nor have I just passed an exam or done anything else worth celebrating. The card with them simply said Just because!
Not wishing to sound tragic or overly sentimental but this meant a huge amount to me. I’ve never been sent flowers by a partner before, for any reason, never mind out of the blue just because they could. I’m also not given to posting every detail of my life over my blog but today, I’m afraid, I just couldn’t help myself.
I feel really special. I feel cared for. I feel like I might be able to power the Olympic village with the strength of the happiness pulsing through me right now and I want to share it with the world.
So I’m sharing. You can tell me I’m daft if you like and that I’m sharing too much of my personal life on a public space but heck, if you don’t celebrate the good things in life when they happen then have you really, properly, appreciated them?
The flowers are beautiful and I really, really appreciate them but it is the thought and emotion behind the gesture that really means the world to me.
So, Ben, thank you! You’ve made my day!
