The power of a flower

The doorbell rang one cold and snowy day last week. It was fairly early and I was still tinkering around upstairs, getting ready for my day. I peeked out of one of the bedroom windows and saw a Fed Ex truck backing out of our driveway.

I’d placed some orders recently, so I figured it was one of those that had been delivered. I also get quite a few books each week to consider for review and many of those arrive via Fed Ex. In any case, I didn’t run right down and see what it was until half an hour later.

When I opened the door, it was none of the things that I was expecting. The shiny black box with gold “FTD” lettering told me I’d received some flowers. Now who could be sending flowers to me?
