Daily Prompt: Â Secret Admirers
You return home to discover a huge flower bouquet waiting for you, no card attached. Who is it from â€” and why did they send it to you?
One last look at the mirror……..eyeliner perfect ! Hairdo perfect ! Dress looking great ! Happy and gleeful I applied one more Â coat of Â lip gloss for that luxurious feel. All set to leave for my work Â I picked up my purse, kissed my son who was making his school bag and grabbed the car keys.
” Why in heaven I can’t get ready in time ” I blabbered while opening the door and what I saw outside was a huge bouquet of Â vibrant roses lying at the door step. Overwhelmed by the surprise I dashed inside leaving the bouquet as fast as my legs could carry me.
” I can’t believe this ! You got me flowers on my birthday ! hugged him,” You were so cool when you wished me in the morning.” squeezed his hand Â affectionately, ” You made my day sweetheart ! kissed him, I am not going to school today. ” Let’s go for a movie ,” I declared.
Totally zapped and embarrassed by this sudden outburst of love and excitement ,my husband humbly submitted his unawareness about the bouquet. It was bit disappointing to know Â though we never made it an essential feature of any special occasion to bring flowers or gifts to wish each other.
” Who must have shown this beautiful gesture to me ?” contemplating all possible options I went about searching for the gift card pinned to the bouquet , wherein I was taken back by motley group of students from my class who actually Â brought it Â and kept there. Looking at my perplexed face one of the girl, Sanya came forward saying, ” We got it for you Miss. Happy Birthday. We thought of giving surprise to you.”
Deeply touched Â and moved by the warmth and love of my students I thanked them for such a lovely gift on my special day. They made me realize the worth of being a teacher Â and I am proud to be one !!!
Every birthday I receive cards with their Â favorite message written:
Roses are red violets are blue
O my teacher I love you.
Have you Â ever received a card having somewhat similar words Â from your son,daughter ,sister or a friend ? It would be nice to know your feelings.
