love in a box

This is what it is like to get
your first bouquet of flowers
from your son...

It is a big box
and it is completely unexpected
and you have no idea at all
who the flowers are from.

You find the envelope
and open it to read the message

and it says:
"Flowers all the way from Stellenbosch
just for you!"

and however big the box is
it is not big enough for the love
that pours out with the flowers.


  1. SO sweet! I haven't gotten flowers, but I have been given ferns from my sons ~ :)Your blog is just lovely; I'm a new follower! ♥

  2. I

    One day it will be my turn.

  3. Aaaaawwwww..... what a sweetheart.

  4. Tears have welled up in my eyes. Your son did well.xx

  5. That bunch of flowers is making an awful lot of people happy by proxy!
    Hope you had a wonderful break.

  6. I agree with Cathy, Master M has not only made you happy but has brought a smile to many other faces this morning. What a star.

  7. Oh how lovely! And such wonderful taste in flowers too. K x

  8. Well done, Master M. Well done indeed.

  9. Oh they are gorgeous!
    And maybe ... MAYBE ... after Bb one day it could be turn too!

  10. Thanks for the happy post--it's a great way to start the morning as I wait for my 4-year-old son to wake up. I'll try to daydream about pretty flowers in my future during one of his tantrums today. :)

  11. How wonderful, you're a lucky lady.

  12. Oh how lovely. And such beautiful flowers. The first, and so far only, time my eldest sent me flowers it had much the same effect on me. Enjoy x

  13. What a beautiful arrangement, the colours are lovely. Well done MasterM!

    I bet you shed a tear or two.

  14. Thank you for sharing such beauty, all around.

  15. Oh, I am glad you are back! Such lovely fowers! And green ones! Green flowers and all that love! So nice to get flowers from you boy, flowers from people who love you are the best kind. But green ones, just wow!
