Needless to say that wasn’t what he meant.
He meant floral arrangements that were an accessory to the home, not just haphazardly thrown in a vase in a random place. But I didn’t get it then.
As I’m seeking to simplify the running of our home and lifestyle I’ve been looking at the services we use. Am I being a good steward? Is this something that really adds value to our family life? Is it something that we could do ourselves?
This week I discontinued the flower service. Using a wholesale flower distributor I placed my first order, took a deep breath and gave it a try.
I’ve discovered that I enjoy flower arranging. Who knew?
The Road Warrior said he was so happy to come home to a (clean) house full of flowers. It looked welcoming and inviting after a hard week away working on the road. My husband felt loved by this (simple) act of service.
Now as I walk through the house, they not only make me smile, but they have become a tangible sense of accomplishment that one doesn’t always find so easily as a homemaker.
I’m adding Florist to my job description…
