You: Were married on August 13th 2016 and brought your table centrepiece flowers to the Regina General Hospital the following day.
Me: A patient in The hospital and, thanks to a caring nurse, a receipient of one of your flower bowls.
I want to wish you a Happy Anniversary and express how thankful I am for your act of kindness. I was pregnant and had recently heard that my baby had died in my belly. I was under 20 weeks so I ended up on the ward where you had brought your flowers.
I was there 3 days waiting to deliver and your flowers followed me when I was moved to a different room. I honestly didn't think about them much as I was processing the fact that our much loved and wanted child was gone.
But when it was time to say goodbye, this first time mother had nothing to leave with her baby boy. It seemed impossibly cruel to leave him all alone when he had always been with me. But then I reached into your still beautiful flower bowl and picked out an unopened white flower bud to lay with him. It seemed fitting.
That particular flower is now very dear to me. I grew them in my yard this year and think of him and of you and your kindness every time I see their blossoms.
