Here’s some good news

A bouquet of tulips made a sad day into something better.

With all these senseless, disturbing shootings currently going on in Surrey, I think it’s time for a good news story and I have one for you.

Recently I was having lunch at the Dublin Crossing Pub and I was not having a good day – so much so that I ended up in tears. My boyfriend was with me and was a great comfort and support.

Sitting across from our table was a young couple also enjoying a sunny day and lunch on the patio. When my boyfriend and I left the restaurant, we walked across the parking lot to the grocery store, and there is where my day/week/year got better.

The young lady that was sitting across from us at the pub came up to me with a bouquet of tulips and said to me “you look like you’re having a bad day” as she handed me the flowers and gave me a big hug and told me it will be all right. Needless to say, I broke out in tears again. It was such an unexpected and touching gesture, I had no words for this wonderful lady.

I would like to say thank you. Thank you for making a sad day into something better.

Stay safe, be happy and my best wishes to you.
