Yesterday I was outside, talking with one of my neighbors.
All of a sudden, a flower delivery truck pulled into the driveway.
My neighbor turned to me & exclaimed, “Are you celebrating a special occasion?!”
I did the quick mental breakdown – it’s no one’s birthday, or anniversary, Adam & I aren’t fighting…
“No,” I told her. “They must have the wrong address.” And then I thought, “Well, Ava lost her first tooth yesterday. Maybe it’s something for her?”
An older gentleman got out of the vehicle & made his way toward the back. He pulled out a plant with a balloon & sang out, “It’s someone’s birthday!”
My neighbor looked at me & I quietly insisted, “No, it’s not.”
I asked if he had the right address.
I looked at the name on the card.
It was mine…
but it wasn’t my birthday.
My birthday is still about 2 weeks away.
Still, I played along & thanked the man as he again wished me a happy birthday & gave me my gift.
I immediately opened the card & it was from my parents. Now it all made sense. They’ll be away for my birthday, so I figured they sent me an early gift. I called my mom to thank her, but she was really quiet. Then she said, “I placed the order…but, they weren’t supposed to deliver it until your birthday.”
Long story short, the flower company missed that part on the note…
But I got an early birthday present!
So, Mom & Lindsay, here is a picture of the plant. It’s so pretty & I absolutely love it!
let’s see how long it takes before I manage to kill it… 😉
