We take turns grocery shopping and yesterday, Ray trudged out with his mask on to forage in the aisles. He did notice some empty shelves again - with Texas numbers rising, are folks hoarding/panicking a bit? Perhaps. But, in a sweet surprise, he brought me these flowers. Said, "I thought you needed some color at the kitchen table." And I did - it's the little things that are so huge.
Flowers always make people better, happier, and more hopeful: they are sunshine, food, and medicine to the soul - Luther Burbank
The flower has no weekday self, dressed as it always is in Sunday clothes - Malcolm de Chazal
