Live, Beautiful and Fragile
The doorbell rings before 9 a.m. A Fed Ex delivery man is there and says with unexpected grace, "Sir, I have a beautiful, fragile, live plant for you." I sign for it and open it to discover a tall, elegant orchid from my co-workers.
This elegant and cheerful bit of life seems such a fitting tribute to the elegant lady it honors. It lifts my spirits and helps me make it through the day.
