Surprise

Sydney's 2nd grade
class went on a
field trip to a tree farm
today. At the
end of their tour,
they were each
given a pansy
plant to take home.
Her first thought
was to give it to me
for Mother's Day.
When I picked her up
after school, she was
trying to hide it
under her coat.
She asked if I could
see what was underneath.
I had seen a flower, so I told her.
She was bummed and pulled it out
and said, I was going to give it to you
for Mother's Day. I thought she might
change her mind, but
next thing I knew, she had placed it
on the window sill in the kitchen.
The surprise wasn't such a surprise,
but the thought sure didn't mean
any less. It was so sweet.

Sydney has such a soft heart! Every time you look at that pansy, it will put a smile on your heart.
