Appreciation in bloom!

I was feeling a bit under-the-weather and not looking forward to working this weekend.

But look what was waiting for me in my workspace at the arts-and-crafts store.....

Over two-dozen pink carnations!

They're from the store-manager-in-training who finished up her last day with our store this past Friday (my day off).

She's being sent to other locations in our district to continue training and help out wherever needed.

During the past few months she's adjusted to all of my coworkers' personalities rather quickly, managed to laugh even on stressful days, and was always appreciative of my help.

She may not be a single gay man but it's nice to actually receive flowers for once instead of buying them myself all the time. One of these days, Dean.

I'm sure I'll see her around from time-to-time when she helps out our store again.

But in the meantime...thank you, Teri!!

How thoughtful of her to leave those for you!

I'm so glad they brought some pleasure to your day and beyond.

And some still in bud! Hopefully they'll bloom as well (but I don't know flowers, so I'm not sure it's possible).

It's always nice to get flowers! They're beautiful, and although the goodbye may have been sad, it's absolutely sweet of her.

Yes, the buds are starting to open now!






Very sweet of her indeed!

She's seen me walk in with flowers I've bought myself many times and knows how much I like them.


I appreciate the three of you chiming in here!
