Hello!! Mother’s day has alredy come and gone in Mexico, but I know many of you will celebrate it on Sunday. I wish you all a very happy Mother’s day, whether you are a mom or have one… or if your mom is already watching over you from above.
Today I received a message, and I just wanted to share it with you. It’s from Godvine.com.
A Bouquet for Mother
A man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived two hundred miles away.
As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing.
He asked her what was wrong and she replied, “I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother. But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars.”
The man smiled and said, “Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose.”
He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother’s flowers.
As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said, “Yes, please! You can take me to my mother.”
She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.
The man returned to the flower shop, canceled the wire order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother’s house.
It does put things into perspective… Many times we take our mothers for granted. Mine has already passed, but I know she’s looking after me.
Have a great Mother’s day!!
