Three Cards and Three Flower Bouquets

A man brought the three cards, the three boxes of candy, and the three sets of flowers up to the cashier for checkout. The cashier rolled her eyes at him as she looked at his wedding band and mumbled…”these players make me sick.” This caused everyone else to look at the man funny too.

The man quietly responded…

“One set is for my mom because my dad passed away recently, and he used to do this for my mom. He taught me how to give love.  The next set is for my wife because I love her and she teaches me how to receive and treasure love. The last set is for my daughter, because it’s up to me to teach her how she should be treated and who she should give her heart to.”

The cashier and other customers waiting in the check out line were quiet – some with tears in their eyes. The cashiers head bowed down. She was speechless.

The man whispered softly to the cashier as he turned to leave, “Have a blessed day.”
