So I bought some daffodils yesterday and when we got home Molly looked at the closed blooms and said "Mama what are those?" with a weird look on her face. I said "they are flowers." She replied "yuck they are ugly" and even flicked one of them. I told her "they may not be too pretty now but wait until tomorrow" to which she stuck her nose in the air and walked away from the ugly things. Well well well this morning she woke up and we were on our way to the bathroom when she gasped so loud I thought she was choking. I looked at her and she was amazed and pointing at the vase on the counter. I said "see I told you" and she said "oh mama those are the most beautiful flowers ever!" and ran over to smell them. It made me think that when I saw them all opened this morning I had that same reaction (only inside my head) and thought we would spread that joy. It was snowing so it was the perfect day to go buy more and give them to people I appreciate so we did. We gave some to Nancy at the coffee shop next door, My buds at the greatest little wrap shop downtown (which by the way is where you can get the most amazing chai tea ever), my good friends Kate and Heather, all the girls at the museum who have been working hard at putting together Sputnikfest and then to my friend Annette. Making people feel happy makes me feel happy so it was a fun day. I can't wait until the flowers start blooming so we can pick some and do that all the time. Oh by the way Annette just opened her etsy shop so stop on over and give her some love.
Feel free to print this picture I took of a daffodil and hang it up. They are instant happy feeling flowers. If I could I would give you a real one. Happy day to you!
