I went to an outdoor concert about an hour from my house. The lady sitting next to me leaned over and said, “I know you! Aren’t you the Flower Lady that brings flowers to the McDonald’s on Markley Street? I asked you for a ride and you drove me home because it was so cold. We sat outside and talked about my sons for an hour, remember?”
I did remember because the situation that she was dealing with was pretty horrific. Two young men who were definitely on a detour from the straight and narrow.
“Yes, I do remember. How are your sons now?”
“I had to put them away.”
We hugged. I said that I wanted to go to the snack bar but I really felt so brokenhearted about the two boys.
Here are just some general pictures of some flower recipients. None of the pictures are of the lady and sons described above.
See the flowers in the boxes? Just waiting for me to pick up each morning.
