Sometimes you never really know how simple two words like “thank you” can mean so much. Today was a day when kind, positive words were especially appreciated.
Rich Jenks made a special trip into the store to tell me that the flowers he ordered earlier in the month lasted for a week longer than expected. And that was a good thing because they were for a memorial service that was postponed for a whole week because of the snow. He wanted to let me know that the flowers looked as good seven days later as the day he picked them up. (I reminded him that sitting in a cool church all week helped make that happen!) But still a very thoughtful gesture for him to take time out of his day to let me know.
Another lady came in to browse and once in the door said, “Oh, it smells WONDERFUL in here!” We do hear that often and appreciate hearing that because of course a flower shop should have a wonderful fragrance! And there was another lady who said, “Thank you for being here. The energy feels really good in here.” And at that point that was good to hear, because most of mine (energy) was depleted! And still another…”Everything’s so colorful, thank you, I’ll be back.”
So, thank you for the thank you’s!
