Making happiness out of sadness.
Our good friends lost their 24 year old son last week. The great sadness came over all of us, but especially them. At the funeral service my friend Kathy asked if we could re-purpose the gifted flowers. I have a side floral business and she knew I had done this before. Of course,! And Kathy and all my girlfriends came forward to help.
The night before I gathered and refreshed all the flowers in vases. My girlfriends met at my house at nine the next morning. We "re-purposed" Austin's flowers into 50 small cup arrangements and Kathy and her daughter Jessica delivered them to the nursing home where Kathy's mother resides.
