The Doc doesn't send flowers routinely. He likes for it to be a surprise when he does. Sometimes on special occasions, sometimes just because.
The Doc was surprised too, but not in a good way. Yesterday was our anniversary. He's working out of town so he called me several times. I never noticed he was waiting on a response. At 9:00 last night, he asked me to go turn on the back porch light and look outside. I couldn't imagine why but complied. Then he asked, "do you see anything?" "Nothing." "Go look all around." "What? Why?" I had to have a reason if I was going to walk around on the damp grass in the dark.
Aww...I felt so bad for him. Grrr...he was upset. The florist did not deliver the flowers.
Today these showed up. And because they were a day late, so did a full refund.
I'd call that a very happy anniversary.
143 has been our little code for years. The number of letters in "I love you."
We've never looked at life through rose colored glasses. There were too many thorns in our path. But our love has stood the test of time and continues to bloom into a full blown love story. Unlike these flowers, it will never fade. We are tending to it daily and that's how I know.
To my sweetheart-
