“Once, when I went to a Sunday service, I was approached by a strange boy. He cannot have been more than 10 years. After greeting me, he asked: “Excuse me, sir, what are you going to do with this flower?”
At first I didn’t even realize what was going on. And only after a few seconds realized that the child was so interested in my buttonhole. “You mean it?” — I asked the boy, pointing to the flower in the buttonhole of my coat.
“Yes, sir. If you are going to throw it out, could you give it to me?” — answered the boy. I said I would gladly give him the flower if he will tell why he wants it.
“I’m going to give it to his grandmother. My mom and dad last year got divorced. At first I lived at my mom’s. But then she got remarried and sent me to live with dad. I lived for a while with my dad, but he had no time to teach me. So I moved in with my grandmother.
Grandmother is very kind to me. She cooks me good food and takes care of me. It is so good that I want to give her this flower,” replied the boy.
When the boy finished, my eyes filled with tears and I could barely speak. I cut the flower from the lapel of his cloak and was about to give it to the boy, but at the last moment changed his mind.
With flower in hand I looked the boy in the eye and said, “these are the nicest words I have ever heard. I can’t give you this flower. But in the Church near the pulpit is a huge bouquet of beautiful flowers. Please take away his confidence. Because your grandmother deserves the best!
The boy is first confused, but then thanked me and said, “What a beautiful day! I asked for one flower, and in return received a wonderful bouquet.”
