Saying Everything Without Saying Anything

He is not one for much talk. Of course, when he does say anything, it’s worth listening to.

But every now and again he does this.

He will get me flowers.

Not because we had a disagreement and he wants to make up.

Not because it is a special occasion.

Certainly not because he is seeking to make me feel good so he can ask for favours!

No, he buys me flowers because he knows I love them.

And because he knows these ones are the ones we had for our wedding.

Though we married in England over almost 29 years ago where orchids were sparse and expensive, these were hand-carried by my mother from Malaysia to be made up into my bouquet…..

In so doing, he says everything without saying anything.
