Bouquet of Thoughts

お友達から「お届け物があるのですが」とご連絡があったので、ロビーまで降りて行こうとしていたらエレベーターから大きな花束を持って出てこられ、びっくり。お誕生日じゃないし〜、と思ったら、「お母様のお供えに」とおっしゃって花束をくださいました。同じ先生のところで同じ時期からお花を習っていますが、お友達はディプロマコースをいくつも卒業されてご立派な腕前に。いつも控えめで謙遜される方なので、「本当は先生にお願いするつもりだったのに、先生がお留守だったので仕方なく自分で〜。」とおっしゃっていましたが、わたしはお友達が束ねてくださったことが尚更嬉しかったです。そして、お花選びも好みど真ん中。じ〜んとしてしまいました。

A friend of mine sent me a message saying she was going to bring something over, so I was going to go down to the lobby.  When I was waiting for the lift she came out of one of them with a large bouquet of flowers!  I was thinking, “It’s not my birthday, I wonder why….”  She told me that it was for my Mum as she knew we had her 3rd year memorial the other day.   This friend and I started going to the same flower class but she’s taken a few diploma courses and is now able to make beautiful bouquets and arrangements.  She is always very humble and told me she would have asked our teacher to make one but the teacher is away on holiday so she had no choice but to do it herself.  I loved the bouquet even more because she made it!  And the choices of flowers is just what I love – so beautiful.  I felt a little tearful from appreciation of her kindness and thoughtfulness.
