Gift bouquet for her, found on desk, brought home and admired by him. No card, but giver identified. Flowers lovingly placed in a vase. A thank you for an act of kindness.

As a soon-to-be retiree, I am beginning to open my ears and eyes to life after employment. When I spotted this opportunity with Deborah Newton, I just had to write about it.
