    A Mother's Day message: author unknown

    The day before Mother's Day, a woman stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be sent to her mother who lived 200 miles away.
    As she got out of her car, she noticed a young girl, slightly familiar to her, who was weeping on the curb. She asked what was wrong and the girl replied, " wanted to buy a red rose for my mother. I only have seventy-five cents and a rose costs more than three dollars." The woman smiled and replied, "Come with me. I'll buy you a rose." She bought the little girl her rose and ordered her own mother's flowers.
    As they were leaving, she offered the girl a ride home. "Yes, please!" she said "but first, I would prefer you to take me to my mom." She directed the woman to a cemetery where the young girl placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.
    The woman returned to the flower shop, canceled her order, bought an armload of flowers and drove the two hundred miles to her mother’s house.
