Roses for Mama
a man stopped at a flower to order some flower to be wired to his mother who lived two hundred miles away.
As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing.
He asked her what was wrong and she replied, " I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother. " But I only have seventy-five cent, and rose cost two dolllars. "
The man smiled and said . "Come on in with me, i'll buy you a rose .''He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother's flowers.
As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said ." Yes, please! you can take me to my mother ."she directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave. The man returned
to the flower shop, cancelled the wire order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother's house.
