You see the child’s hands behind their back and you wonder what in the world they could be up to…
The 3 year old hands you a big handful of flowers, weeds, and grass that they pulled up from the backyard with a huge goofy smile on their face.
“These are for you.” they say as they let go and the flowers droop in your hand. Dandelions, daisies, violets, buttercups, some 3 leaf clovers and pieces of grass are all thrown in the mix. You give them a big smile and tell them, “Thank you!
These are beautiful. Let’s go put them in water.” Heading inside to get a small vase or even a cup full of water, they look so proud that they got you such a great gift.
Even though the stems are too short, most of the petals are missing, all the flowers are broken or drooping and the leaves are ripped, you do honestly love it, you know it is AWESOME!
