Over nearly 44 years of marriage, we have experienced a lot of living. Looking back, I have some regrets, of course. Who doesn’t? But I wonder if some regrets might not be as deep if at certain points I had been a little more grateful.
So today, I’m just going to say what I need to say.
“Thank you, Steve.”
First, for going outside to check the garden. Even more, for picking 8 daffodils. Even more, for putting them in a vase on the dining room buffet so that when I came upstairs, tired after work, their yellow brightness was the first thing I saw.
It was truly the best part of my day. And I’m deeply grateful.

Simple bouquet, simple illustration, simple message, simple gratitude. Your slice came to you, today. I’ll take it as a reminder.
Sometimes a simple love is all we need…and maybe a few daffodils!
A beautiful and very special bouquet.
Yes. More than I can say.
So very sweet! It’s amazing what a simple act of kindness and thoughtfulness can do to one’s mood.
This is beautiful! How meaningful a simple gesture can be, and how important it is to recognize it!
Perfect. I’m so glad you are letting your husband know how meaningful this simple act was to you. So sweet to place them where they would give you so much pleasure.
The perfect combination of appreciation and thoughtfulness, perhaps the recipe for the 44 year marriage.
