So last night, this gorgeous guy was asked to do one of those annoying errands that wives ask their husbands to do.
“Could you please go and pick up that one ingredient I forgot to buy, and that will make my meal complete, at the local fruit and veggie store, that may or may not only be open for another 20 minutes, while I am making supper, even though you are already home for the evening and you were about to put your sweats on ?” Blink, blink…
Angel that he is, he actually went without too much complaining and saved his muttering about how “high maintenance” I can sometimes be for the drive to the store I am sure…
Then he came home with a large brown paper bag, carefully rolled down closed.
And inside the bag, on top of the one ingredient I was missing to have a perfect supper was this :
The greenest, brightest, pinkest, happiest Gerbera Daisy that I have seem since summer !!!!
It looked like a bouquet of smiling faces!
He said he felt like it called to him and he thought we could use its happy in the house.
I was thrilled, needless to say !
For the rest of the evening, whenever we walked by the plant, we would say “Hello there, smiley face !”
Both of us.
‘Cause that’s the kind of silly we are.
Cute, eh ?
Then later in bed, just before sleep, when we were doing our nightly ritual of saying what we were grateful for in this day,
I expressed my gratitude that he brought the bouquet of happy into our home.
We both decided the flowers were not pink, but Salmon, otherwise known as Man Pink.
Whatever color you want to call it, I have named the plant, that is hanging with me in the sunny studio today,
Because that is what my husband, partner, best friend, love
brings me everyday.
I love you, David.

Have a joyous Thursday, Beautiful Ones.
