FLOWERS FOR STRANGERS!
Sparkle Mission #1 is in honor of Cheryl ~ the cashier at my local grocery. Last week while checking out, I could tell the energy was a bit off from this usually cheerful soul. I kept perceiving heavy sighs escaping her. I wanted to say something to comfort her, but couldn’t think of the words. So, instead I told her to hold on a minute with my order while I went to get something that I’d forgotten. I came back with a beautiful bouquet of blue irises. She scanned them and then handed them to me and I said “Oh, those are for YOU!”
She was incredulous and I believe her words were “Get outta here!” :) Her whole face lit up and she asked what they were for and I said “Just for being you.” I left the store in the wake of her gracious smile and I felt awesome. The feeling stayed with me all day.
Just 2 days ago, I was checking out with Cheryl again and she thanked me again, telling me she’d been having a bad day and the flowers meant so much. She also informed me that irises are her favorite. Again, I left the store feeling great.
Giving flowers to someone who needs them ~ whether you know them or not ~ is a FABULOUS win-win situation and a perfect way to spread the MAGIC!!!
Your mission if you choose to accept it, is to sparkle a stranger or an acquaintance with a bouquet of flowers ~ and with the abundance of spring flowers in bloom, a picked bouquet (for free!) would fit the bill just perfectly! Not only will it make their day, it will make yours as well!
You have 1 week to complete Sparkle Mission #1. Please post your experiences here!!!
