It was beautiful, pink, with hints of red…
A beautiful single rose.
He woke up rather early in the morning to
put out the ‘Valentines spread’.
ALOT of chocolate… with a beautiful card
and a single rose.
He knows what I like.
The Rose had a plastic case on the bottom of the stem to
give it the water it needed.
And I just assumed that a rose wouldn’t need much..
The amount of water that was in the ‘case’ would be enough.
I went on to enjoy the perfect day..
eating chocolate, staring at the rose..
Monday morning- I woke up,
Happy that we each get to take the day off for Family Day…
I go to the kitchen to make breakfast… and
by making breakfast I obviously mean putting bread in the toaster.
And thats when I saw it..
The petals were already starting to dry up.
How could THIS be?? It has ONLY been one day??
I checked the plastic case on the stem…
It was bone dry. BONE DRY!
I guess I was wrong thinking that it would be enough water.
I can’t bare to throw it away… It has only lived a short life.
So there it stays.
On my counter.
I can barely stand to look at it now, I just feel bad.
But I will not throw it away… until I can feel like I have ‘appreciated it’ as much as it should have been…
Internet, Matt doesn’t understand how I could kill a flower in 24 hours.
He thought it was impossible to do.
* this is what my rose could have looked like if it had lived… and reproduced… sigh*
