Entry 18: A Sweet Surprise

A single thoughtful gesture turned sad tears into happy tears last night. After days of anxiety, I found another reason to smile and feel grateful. C’s gorgeous surprise bouquet (the best kind, really) was just what I needed.

At times, the distance between us can be disheartening, but all the miles apart can make each gesture more precious and every chance to see each other a cause for celebration. Time spent with each other means date nights, cooking sessions, morning chats, even shared chores. Occasionally, if we’re lucky, a getaway at the beach.

Things are not perfect, but they’re lovely nonetheless. The flowers, a combination of roses and soon-to-bloom stargazers, now sit on my desk – a charming reminder that someone cares. And for that, I’m grateful.
