Flowers are a given for some people. Fresh-cut blossoms are as much a fixture in their home as the kitchen sink.
For others of us, they are a luxury, an indulgence.
I fall in the that latter category. (Though I keep saying I'm going to start buying fresh flowers every week.)
But if I did, would a gift bouquet like this one from my daughter and her family still seem as special?
Oh, I can't imagine anything detracting from the beauty and the love that went into sending this elegant arrangement.
And of course, my second thought (after the initial "Oh, how lovely!") was, "Why, you shouldn't have..."
My third thought? Oh, but I'm so glad you did...
At the end of the day, when someone does something special for a woman like me, WHY is it a given she'll respond with..."Why, you shouldn't have?"
