Today, I met an older woman at a large art fair my company was attending who sat at the booth next to ours. Her small business makes pressed flower books. This morning I overheard her explain how difficult it is to perfectly press the flowers. She said that the hardest part of making a book is to find the right flowers – ones that are in good shape. She said she wished flowers would just pop up nearby in perfect shape. On my lunch break I came across a patch of beautiful wildflowers on the side of the road. I stopped and picked the nicest flowers I could find and put them in a plastic bag. When I got back from lunch, before she got to her booth, I put the bag of flowers in the woman’s booth. Ten minutes later when she opened the bag, the look on her face was like a little kid opening a great present on Christmas morning. I didn’t tell her they were from me, but she noticed me looking at her, held the flowers up for me to see and with the biggest smile on her face said, “Someone just made my week!” MMT
