Sweet-smelling surprises: A jaunt to the florist

This week, I ventured out to honor the florist, with the idea that it was worthwhile to recognize someone whose career is rooted in creating beautiful things for others. I even found a fitting “thank you” - a watering can! The interaction exceeded all expectations; I walked in the flower shop and recognized the owners as folks from my church. Having never officially met, it was a sweet surprise…even sweeter when they shared that “joy rides” were something they wanted to support, with fresh flowers each week. Blessings abound – even when you least expect it.
