A Very Busy Week

This has been a busy week!  I worked at a flower shop to help with the Valentine rush, and  sure enough, we had a lot of guys come in at the last minute to get flowers just like we always do every year.  Some would come in wanting a particular color of roses or maybe tulips or some special flower.  Others would come in and haven’t a clue as to what they wanted.  In either case, it was fun helping them get something they were proud to give.  My favorite customer that I helped this week was a sweet elderly lady.  She wanted to wire flowers to her only daughter out-of-state, and she had waited till the last minute, also.  We had already cut off taking new delivery orders for Valentine’s Day because all our delivery trucks were full.  Most shops were in the same situation, so I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to find a florist in the other city who could deliver flowers for her.  But I did, and she was so thrilled that her daughter was going to get flowers from her on Valentine’s Day.  I told my co-worker how much I enjoyed doing that, and she said, “That’s what we’re here for…to make people happy!”   And that’s what made the job so enjoyable.
