It's The Thought That Counts

While on the doorstep last night unlocking it to come in Callum turned round and said to me:

"Mummy I forgot, I picked you some flowers at school, they were near the bush. I picked lots for you."

Upon getting inside the house he emptied his pocket out and put in my hand about 20 little flower heads... all dead. The sad look on his face when he saw them was heartbreaking. I told him never to mind about them being dead it was the thought that counted and maybe next time he wanted to get me flowers he could tell Daddy and they could buy some from the shop that won't die so quickly. It was such a sweet tender moment. Bless him.
