Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Birthday Tulips


--by annjav, posted Aug 10, 2013

I meet with a group of friends each Wednesday to quilt, visit, and laugh.  
 
We take turns bringing lunch but the same dear lady always opens her home to our group.
 
Last week was her birthday and for once I was on the ball. I stopped at the flower shop and purchased a pot of tulips for her.
 
I am happy to report that she was both surprised and pleased with them, and we all enjoyed them as we spent the day with her. 
 
She was especially pleased that they were tulips since she is Dutch and most tulips come from Holland. I was just lucky with that!
