It was Mother’s Day. A man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived 200 miles away.
As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing.
He asked her what was wrong & she replied, “I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother & I don’t have enough money.”
The man smiled & said, “Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose.”
He bought the little girl her rose & ordered his own mother’s flowers.
As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said, “Yes, please! You can take me to my mother.”
She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.
The man returned to the flower shop, canceled the wire order, picked up a bouquet & drove the two hundred miles to his mother’s house.
