When I first got married, my husband would occasionally bring me roses. I am not a big fan of roses. And I think he only did roses or bought me flowers because he should. So, after years of grocery flowers bought at the last minute, I declared flowers were a waste of money. Now, I love flowers, fresh cut and mixed.
I want the flowers to be just because. Some thought and a little love. I don't want them to be the go to gift. But theses flowers reminded me of you. After years of getting no flowers and no disappointments in that area, I started buying small bouquets of mixed colorful flowers. Put on the table or counter. They just brighten a room and flowers can brighten your relationship. Said husband could not understand the meaning of the just because flowers. So no expectation, no flowers.
Recently, when I declared I wanted to separate, the just because flowers have started showing up. It's irritating. The flowers are beautiful but it brings sadness and a lost hope. All I ever wanted was beautifully mixed flowers just because you couldn't stop thinking of me. After years of the flower-less marriage, now you send me flowers.
