Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Power of Anonymous Flowers


--by penguin, posted Mar 27, 2007
I work for a large investment firm in Vancouver, and our "back office" is located in Toronto.  There are two special ladies in Toronto who always answer my questions and treat me well, even though the only reason I ever speak with them is when something has gone wrong...they save my butt time and time again. 

Today, one of them resolved an issue that has been ongoing for a month.  I was beginning to think that I would never be able to tell the Investment Advisor at the firm that everything had been set right.  I was so grateful for her help, and mentioned this in an email to her. 

Although she thanked me for my kind words, I felt that this was a time to give a little extra effort.  So I ordered some flowers to be anonymously delivered tomorrow, addressed to both of these "Super Women" with a note thanking them for all that they do.

I feel so wonderful knowing that the flowers will brighten their day, and show them that someone is thinking about them!

I commend you for taking the extra time that it took for you to say thanks for the help that you received. And FYI ladies love receiving flowers.....mostly when it is not expected. On behalf of unappreciated ladies everywhere...Thank You!!!!
