Get crafty with our DIY paper tulips tutorial!
As Mother’s Day is approaching (12th May), let’s make mom shed some tears with a bunch of heartfelt handcrafted tulips for a change.
For the rest of us, here’s a little reminder for us to cherish the time we have with our mothers while we still can.
A man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived two hundred 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 and she replied, “I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother.
But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars.”
The man smiled and said, “Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose.”
He bought the little girl her rose and 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 and drove
the two hundred miles to his mother’s house.
To all Mums in YTL, we are grateful and proud to have you on board.
Happy Mother’s Day to you!
