So on Saturday I went to the grocery store. The first thing I saw was a sign that said 25 cent flowers. How tempting was that? I passed the sign, and the huge bin of flowers, and decided I wasn't going to spend money on something I didn't really need. I wondered down the aisle and at the end was another huge bin with the same sign. I paused, and remembered how much Gracie loved the flowers that I had gotten for Valentine's Day. She was in awe. She smelled them and her little face lite up. I figured 25 cents was a small price to pay to she her face light up like that again. I gave in and enjoyed every second of it. I even bought two bundles for a whopping 50 cents. The roses came with some red carnations, I figured I had to be fair, so Obie got the red flowers and Gracie got pink. She was thrilled. She got to take them up to her room and decide where she wanted to put them and everything. Obie wasn't as into them but he did like to pretend he was sniffing them like Gracie. The 50 cents was so worth seeing her excitement. . .I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Intent and outcome are so rarely coincident.
