Stories of Kindness from Around the World

๐Ÿ’• Celebrating The Love!

--by mindyjourney, posted Oct 28, 2023

Due to a variety of reasons, MisterM and I decided to share the LOVE ๐Ÿ’•of our 46th wedding anniversary by doing something different to celebrate.

We gave origami flowers with inspirational centers - sort of like fortune flowers ๐ŸŒธ, instead of fresh roses, which had gotten outrageously expensive!

The folks we gave the origami flowers to - mostly tourists (we live in a popular vacation area), were thrilled to receive, some sharing their own anniversary stories. One couple was even on their honeymoon.

With the savings, we then donated to St. Joseph’s Indian School, who encourages and supports Native American children through education, development, nutrition, leadership, sports and play.

Grateful for each precious year and the LOVE ๐Ÿ’• that connects us ALL! Blessed and grateful ๐Ÿ™.

*A special thank you to the kind friend for the PEACE wind chime gift and tea bag quotes.

Wishing both of you all the happiness and love in the world and congratulations on your anniversary. Happy belated Anniversary !

Giving Origami flowers is a very good idea in place of roses. Roses weather in a few days but Origami flowers will remain for ever.

Donation to St. Josephโ€™s Indian School is greatly appreciated.
