She walked into the Ballroom just as I had gotten off a difficult phone call, and was waiting for my next client to arrive.
I had never seen her before. Petite, pretty and fairy-like, she was holding a bouquet of twelve deep red, velvety roses as she made her way towards my desk.
I got up, met her half way, and she told me that she wanted me to have these flowers.
"But, you don't know me... " I said.
"No, but I want you to have them" was her answer. And then she added: "You can give them away, if you want. One at a time, or all together, or you can keep them."
I told her that I would really love to give them to my next client, the one who was on her way here, if that was okay with her. I knew that she could very much use a dozen red roses, right about then.
She gave me a smile, her blessing, and a hug.
After she left, I put the roses in water, and with my nose buried deeply into the bouquet, I let the Essence of the gift swim through my heart. I took it in all the way.
Five minutes later, when I handed them to a beautiful, tender woman, I knew that the gift had been multiplied several times.
I believe that these roses are not done giving. Take a look at the photo and help yourself.
I am pretty sure they were meant for you, too.
