The Love Rose

I was lucky enough to witness a sweet and touching moment while at the Long Beach Sunday Market.  My sister's new business Songs' Crepes has started getting regulars at her booth since starting just a little over a month ago.  Most people that frequent the market are generally very nice people.  But, this local lady stood out amongst the crowd.

Cari on the left, nice lady on the right.

You see every crepe made by Song's is made with 100% love at no extra charge.  She appreciated this so much that she went back home after eating a crepe and reciprocated the love by bringing Cari back a rose from her own garden called a Love Rose.  It really is called a Love rose.  It is red with white on the bottom side of the petals.  Very pretty.



This lady had recently suffered a stroke and has been dealing with the complications that come along with it.  She did not let this stop her to show her love for Song's Crepes.  After all the hard work and sweat it's these kind of people that make it all worthwhile.  I am just glad me and my camera were there to witness it.

Have you shown love to your favorite waitress, grocer, dog-walker, phlebotomist or accountant lately?  If not, do it.  A simple, friendly gesture can make anyone's day.

Thank you Carol! Very sweet of you to say.

I've since learned that the nice lady's name is Jenny.
