I got a dozen roses
I got a dozen roses
Can you believe it,I got a dozen roses. They were sent to mef From a friend the other day. So I took them with me and went for a walk. By the time I got home I only had one left, during my walk I gave them all away.
I gave one to my elderly neighbor, who has become very dear to me. It felt good to share this floral cheer.
I contiued my walk on down the street and spotted a couple spending time together sitting onchairs in their front lawn. So I walked up and said "Hello" and gave them each a rose. And walked away. I bet it just made them think 'This is a crazy day.'
I turned and went back to my house, got in my truck to take one to a friend whom I haven't known for very long, She is a single mom, that won't ask for help. She struggles, so in some small way. I hope this helps her carry on.
I looked down to think of what to do with the rest. So I stopped by the church And placed all but one by the alter. And thanked God for all that he'd done. He has helped me in so many ways; he sends me Angels to help and guide me by showering me with a cheerful presence on my dreary days.
I am telling you these Roses were so pretty the first one's that anybody had ever sent to me. They had given me such joy, and laughter the moment I saw them, I just could not keep them all.
I never knew why a woman loves to get a dozen roses. Until I recieved these. It was not in the flowers beauty or smell. It is the happiness I received and the feeling of love that some one cares about me.
I gae them away all but this single, a long stemed bud, standing straight, beautiful, and tall.
I called my two friends that gave me the roses, said "Thank you. You two helped brighten up my day. I explained to my kid's that I had recieved so much joy in their gift. But that I had shared the gift I had received. And told all whom I gave
a rose to "THis from my kid's a gift for you. Through me to you."
I still don't know what I loved the most getting the flower's or giving them away. I will take both
