My daughter lives in a tiny town in the Midwest. And while getting ready to elope, Jennifer went to the local flower shop to order a small, quaint bouquet of flowers. On the day of her expected departure, she returned to pick up the bouquet and found the flower shop was closed for the day. Knowing one of the owner’s relatives, Jennifer dashed over to the bank.
The mother-in-law said, “Your bouquet is down at the drive-through.”
So Jennifer went to the local beer store, known for the coldest beer in town, and drove up to the window. “Do you have a bouquet of flowers for me?”
Jennifer, trying not to chuckle, said, “Do you have another arrangement in there?”
“No.” the woman shook her head.
As Jennifer drove away, she called me and explained the situation. “I didn’t know I had to specify real flowers at a flower shop, Mom.”
Laughing heartily, I reminded her that God has a great sense of humor!
Jennifer, in keeping with a good attitude, has decided to keep the flowers forever as a symbol of her and her husband’s new nutty love for one other.
A great big congratulations to Jennifer and Randall — may God Bless your marriage mightily. With much Love, Mom.
