Thanksgiving is just around the corner

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. A festival of great significance for more than a century, it denotes a time when families and friends get together to spend the weekend together generally with a lavish feast or a simple family dinner. But last year, I was forced to spend it away from my home due to an emergency at work.

However, an old friend of my father graciously invited me to his home. They were an elderly couple- the Browns, with a 23 year old daughter, Sara, who worked in New Jersey. I was really excited. My hosts were so amiable and treated me like a member of their family Wishing to contribute more for this special day, I ordered FTD Thanksgiving Flowers from OnlineFlowers.com. This Thanksgiving bouquet was a gorgeous cluster of deep peach, dark rust Leonidas and orange spray roses arranged attractively in a designer glass vase. It also doubled as a Thank you flower bouquet and was my personal way of saying thank you to my generous hosts.

On Thanksgiving Day, the house looked warm and inviting with the painstaking efforts of Mrs. Brown. She had tidied the whole house and every surface was sparkling. When I gave her the Thanksgiving bouquet, her motherly face broke into a loving smile and she pulled me into an affectionate hug. She placed these lovely, FTD Thanksgiving flowers made of the finest autumn roses at the center of the dining table. The table looked spectacular when she was done with it. The whole room lit up as if it were basking in the glory of God’s grace, every surface gleaming and glowing with autumn’s loveliness.

When Sara and Mr. Brown arrived, they were overwhelmed by these FTD Thanksgiving Flowers and the sumptuous spread. We said grace and enjoyed the delicious feast. Though I was miles away from my home, I felt part of a family that day. I was glad that my thanksgiving bouquet had brought about that subtle change in the ambience. It is one memory that will be etched into my mind forever.
