Appreciate What You Have
An old man got on a crowded bus one February 14th, carrying a dozen roses and sat beside a young man. The young man looked
at the roses and said, “Somebody’s a fortunate lady.” “Yes,” said the old man with smile on his face, my wife. “Do you
have a girlfriend?” the old man inquired. “I do,” said the young man and one day I hope to be happily married. “I’m going
to see her right now to give her this Valentine’s Day card.”
They rode in silence for around five minutes as the young
man kept glancing at the roses. The old man pressed the bell for the next stop and stood up when the bus came to a halt.
As he stepped out into the aisle, he suddenly placed the roses on the young man’s lap and said, “I think my wife would
want you to have these. I’ll tell her that I gave them to you.” The young man was flabbergasted; he looked up to thank
the old man but by now he was nearly out of the door. As the bus pulled away, the young man watched to see the old
man enter the gates of the local cemetery.
