Gifts can be the best thing in the world to give and receive or they can turn into the worst thing that has ever happened.
Billy had been dating his girlfriend Sammi for two years. Christmas was approaching and things were a little rough between Sammi and Billy. You see, Sammi wanted Billy to be more romantic and Billy was not a romantic guy. Deep down Sammi just wanted a Christmas present that came from the heart.
Billy had bought her socks for two birthdays, a cell phone cover for Valentine’s Day, a key chain that lit up for their first-year anniversary, and an assortment of other gift cards and presents that lacked feeling. Sure, he was trying but he wasn’t succeeding, even though she had gently tried to lead him in the right direction.
Sammi wanted more. Billy sat and racked his brain on how to be more romantic but it just was not there. He had a list of things to buy Sammi for Christmas and he knew he had to do better. However, as it turned out, Billy did not feel the spark for Sammi that made him want to do better.
On Christmas Day when Sammi unwrapped her case of Bud Light with two glasses she cringed. There was a note attached to the two glasses that read “May we spend many more Christmases together toasting to the rest of our life together.” That might have been OK, but he should’ve known she liked wine.
Sammi knew that this was not the life that she wanted. She wanted something greater. She knew what she had to do so she sent Billy out the door, giving him the glasses to share with someone who would appreciate them. She sat by the window the next day wishing for something more.
All of a sudden, Chris, a person that Sammi had been in love with since she was a little girl, came walking up the path. Sammi went to the door and opened it to see Chris with a smile on his face and the most beautiful bouquet of flowers she had ever seen. Chris handed her the bouquet and didn't have to say more because the beauty of the flowers said it all.
In a moment of stress and sadness, Chris had come through and, though she didn’t often, tears welled in her eyes and spilled over. He held her and gave warmth to her joy.
Chris has given Sammi flowers every Christmas, Valentine’s Day and wedding anniversary since. And a lot of times, for no reason at all. Sammi thought she was very lucky - Chris knew he was.
Sammi finally found the romance that she was looking for. Chris won the heart of the girl that he always loved with Christmas flowers. You see, Chris had always loved Sammi but he never thought that she was interested.
That year he had realized that it was now or never and when he saw the Christmas flowers by FTD he knew that it would be the perfect gift. A great florist can tell a story with flowers. The beauty and compassion put into a bouquet show through the finished product.
A bouquet of flowers can say that one word love, clearly. Florists who arrange Christmas flowers understand this and that is why when Chris called them they knew exactly what to do.
