I live in south California. Every year I celebrate mothers day, by giving gifts to my mother, who lives in New Jersey. Always I make a point to be with my mother on mothers day. But last year, due to some important assignments, i had been to california, thinking that, I would return by that day. But unfortunately, I could not return, as planned.
Anyhow, Now that it was not possible to be with my mother on that day, I thought of another way, by sending her, her favourite Red Rose flowers. I contacted a nearby florist and ordered the Rose flower bouquet.
After ordering, I had a good sleep. But when I contacted my mother, she said, she did not receive them. I enquired with the florist. He said their van carrying flowers, met with an accident. But thanks, to the good florist, he took an immediate action, by contacting another florist, and made all arrangements to reach the flowers to their destination.
My mother called and said that she received her favourite flowers and was very happy. This gave me a sigh of relief. Though, almost a year has passed, this is very fresh in my mind. I can never forget last year's Mother's day.
