A Rose From a Rose

Yesterday I had a few minutes before my haircut and was wandering around the nearby Earth Fare. I was intently looking at some moisturizers and asking the department’s employee some questions when a cute little girl in the most Christmas-y red dress came up to us declaring, “Christmas is coming!” Her dad was nearby and had a huge smile on his face. One second later, she brought us each a pink rose. I initially thought she had lifted it from the floral section and her dad would be needing them back so he could return them, but then I noticed a tag on the rose. Reading it made me stop in my tracks and really smile deeply, from my heart and soul. What a lovely gesture and a beautiful lesson for this father to teach his daughter!

No matter what your beliefs and whether you celebrate Christmas or not, it is important to remember the true spirit of this holiday. Treating others with respect and integrity while doing something small to brighten another’a day is the best gift you can give!
