Flowers and Gratitude.

This morning I'm giving thanks to my man who came home with beautiful, mini roses for me yesterday.   I was happily surprised and very grateful!  (those little things mean so much to me)  

I've been having such a stressful time of it lately that I think he intuitively knew I needed a little pick me up, or a little reminder that he was thinking of me.   It's amazing how the little things in life, like receiving flowers can bring us so much joy and happiness.

What can I say....I'm a hopeless romantic.  Flowers, cards, candy, notes, texts that say or show love....yup I adore them.  Honestly, any little gift that is given from the heart means the world to me.  I'm even happy with little phone calls each day, it's just about doing those little extras.  To me those are as water is to a flower, they help to nurture and sustain loving relationships. 

Lets face it none of us are mind readers, and so it's good to let the ones we love know how we feel or that we are thinking of them.  So today call, write, or send the person you love a little something special! 

Thought I would share this with you too, as a friend had sent it to me and it is filled with little ways to show express love.  I thought it was cute.
