On Thursday night when I opened the door of my apartment, this sweetness wafted toward me. My mind calculated, “Did I leave something out? What is that?”
As I flipped on the light, I saw graceful pink lilies on my table!!
My guy had used his key to get into my place and leave this gift while I was out.
I had been feeling a bit gray and out of sync with the people I had been hanging out with that night, but these lilies added to my hope.
Here’s a Longfellow quote from an old family friend, Bettie Borchert: (Her Mom used to quote it to her!)
“Be still sad heart and cease repining,
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining.
Into each life some rain must fall; some days must be dark and dreary.”
Tis true, but end with the thought that there is hope and light above the gray.
And maybe sometimes sweet lilies snuck in by an amazing significant other!
