Counting Our Blessings – Everyone Is OK After Car Hits My Little Flower Shop

We are so thankful that no one was hurt in the accident that occurred at our store yesterday. For those of you who don’t know, here’s the news account of a car driving straight through our front window at 1:30 yesterday afternoon.  Luckily there was no one in the store at the time. While this in no way compares to the recent violence in Colorado, it jolted us out of our everyday existence in a similar way.

It shouldn’t take shocking events to make us count our blessings, and to be thankful for the people in our lives, but sometimes it does. Let’s take these events and turn them to our advantage. Ask yourself: have you been kind today? Have you told your significant other that you love them? Have you told your children you are proud of them? Have you given yourself and your co-workers credit for accomplishments, big and small? It’s never the wrong time to share loving, encouraging thoughts.

We extend a big ‘thank you’ to all the first responders, neighbors, fellow business owners, friends, family, and customers who have reached out to us. We are My ‘Little’ Flower Shop, but we feel BIG love from our community.  Consider it one more blessing – we’re losing count. Lucky us.

Be well, and love well.
