I love receiving flowers, I mean who doesn’t? Not only do they smell great but they make me feel special and it’s not everyday I’m made to feel special. Sometimes it feels as though I’m not appreciated but then I receive some flowers “just because” and it totally makes my day. As a Peanuts Ambassador I was given the opportunity to receive one of the brand new Peanuts Collection floral arrangement from Teleflora. At this time they have the Snoopy’s Cookie Jar (shown above) and the Peanuts Christmas Mug. I decided on the Cookie Jar floral arrangement because as a big fan of Snoopy I love the fact that I could use the cookie jar after my flowers were no longer viable. This post was supposed to be totally different, but something happened when I received my flowers that I want to share.
Now my daughter is only 3 but she has fallen in love with our next door neighbor. When we first moved into our home we found out that she had just lost her husband. She invited us to visit at anytime because she lived all alone and doesn’t get much company. With my anxiety, I’m not comfortable visiting on a daily basis, or at all to be honest. My daughter however has adopted her as her “grandmother”. Every morning she would get up and look out the door and say “Joyce is home, I’m going to see her” and I would have to say “it’s too early, wait until it’s at least 10am”. She would run across the street, I live in a cul-de-sac so it’s very safe, and ring her doorbell. She has NEVER turned her away and would sit outside with her, or invite her in, for as long as she wants. I’ve always chalked it up to her being lonely and wanting the company.
Well when our flowers arrived I said “these are beautiful and we’ll get to put cookies in there” but Madison wasn’t thinking about the flowers or the cookie jar. She said “I want to give them to Joyce” without hesitation. It really shocked me to hear a 3 year old wanting to give and not think of herself as most kids her age are prone to do. I told her to get her jacket and we headed across the street. You may have seen the following photo on Instagram, but Joyce was extremely happy to receive them and I couldn’t be more proud of Madison. This is what the holidays is all about, spreading and giving cheer to those who need it most.
We received our beautiful Snoopy Cookie Jar Floral Arrangement today from @teleflora and Madison did something wonderful and I’m so proud of her. She said “I want to give them to Joyce”. Joyce is our elderly neighbor who lost her husband this year and lives all alone. She was really happy to get them. Surprise someone in your life with a beautiful Peanuts floral arrangement this holiday and make their day. 💐💐#GrowingUpMadison #SendCheer #Snoopy #Teleflora #PeanutsAmbassador #ad
