The night before Mother's Day, Steve brought me a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers. I began searching my brain for the exact location of the one vase I knew I had kept. I checked the cupboards, upstairs and down. No luck. I checked the storage area, the pantry, the closets. No vase. Before I went into complete panic mode, my bestie Marian, who had arrived a bit earlier, appeared with a gift bag for me. She set it in front of me, and with a smile, said, "I think you should open your present now." Of course I told her she didn't have to bring me a gift, but she just smiled and told me to open it. I am sure by now you know what was inside, right?
The most beautiful vase I have ever seen.
I will remember that moment forever.
We all will.
Everyone needs a Marian in her life.
I am so very thankful for ours.
