Just a Note, Not

Not birthday,
Not holiday.
Not because you had to.

Just a Note.

From the heart
These words came
and are received.

One of my favorite
things in life
are words

Simple words, crafted with care
meaningful to the receiver
So thoughtful from the giver

Just a note

not to me
best gift
from one to another.

This note came with an added treat . . .

The title of the photo says it all; in-law family members included

On Kindness

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.  He

positions, re-positions tulips in different rooms as the day wanes
carefully carrying and turning the bouquet into the

sunlight.

She said it was for putting others first.  He
changes the water for freshness, admiring commentary with every turn.

Signs of appreciation bloom,
beautifies a home in many ways.
