Not A Petal, Not Even a Leaf

It’s Valentine’s Day!

Flowers delivered to the office are a plenty. Being assigned at the frontdesk, we get to receive them first. But it’s not ours [not one for the 4 lovely admin ladies]. They’re for some of the ladies and one gentleman in the company. A male officemate received a bouquet from his girlfriend --- lucky guy! Me, I’m not really expecting anything from my hubby. It would be one big surprise if I ever receive a petal or a leaf from him. Four years and I’m getting used to it. Fact is, I love receiving flowers but if my husband doesn’t want to send one then let it be. The man has his own reasons and I truly understand. I’m so over that “bitter” phase. I used to really feel bad and bitter but now I’m okay. It's just a matter of acceptance...and I accept him for who he really is without prejudice whether he sends flowers or not on V-day and on any other special occasion. That's love...

Happy Valentine's Day to all!

hey there...thanks for dropping by. yeah, agree and i think unconsciously we enjoy being hurt. though he didn't gave me flowers, he gave us some chocolate lollies that i shared with my daughter --- simple but sweet.
