a bouquet of flowers.... better than shoes! Every time! Any shoes!

I had lunch today with a very dear friend. We have known each other for many, many years and I have always thought he’s one of the kindest, smartest, funniest, most interesting people I have ever had the luck to meet in my life! He was my French teacher many years ago, when I still had the luxury of a language course, and we clicked from the beginning... I believe it was his amazing sense of humour and witty comebacks that immediately made me like him! He’s still like this! Better even!

For years, and mainly because I had lost myself in a relationship that had made me a shadow of the woman I used to be (and thankfully I’m again now) we lost touch... but he always had a place in my heart! And since last year, when my life was turned upside down, we reconnected... and what a blessing this is! I may have not been the luckiest woman romantically (yes, I am not without blame in this...) but I have the greatest luck of all when it comes to my friends! I have said it before and I will keep saying it! Because it’s true! They are wonderful!

So, today I had lunch with my dear A and at some point I mentioned that I had not received flowers from anyone in a long time, probably since the last time he offered me some... an hour later, he appeared holding the loveliest bouquet of, mostly red (my favourite colour...) beautiful flowers! I was truly overwhelmed! What a gesture! Such kindness! My otherwise grey, grim afternoon turned bright! I was moved! Such a simple, heartfelt, honest, kind offer! How could I not be moved? How could it not warm up my heart? An unexpected act of kindness! Of friendship! Of love! A bouquet of flowers! A million times better than shoes! Merci! ❤️
