Secret Admirer

A secret admirer sent me some Gerber daisies, and I cannot imagine who would care for me enough to do that, it wasn’t Maria, the only other person I know who might. I wonder who you are and why you sent me these flowers. They did brighten my day, and lift my heart up and remind me why I love living in this world. The daisies remind me that there are so many good and thoughtful people out there in the world, and some of them think enough of me to send me these beautiful things. Not necessary, I want to say, you shouldn’t have bothered, but a small voice inside of me chuckled, and said, “don’t listen to him, thanks for sending them, they are beautiful.”
