If you’ve ever shared an office space with others, then you’ve probably had the chance to celebrate a couple of birthdays and exciting life-milestones together. It’s always so fun to celebrate together, especially when parties are thrown, a cake is shared, and beautiful flowers get delivered.
One day, a bouquet showed up at Kayla Miller’s office. As soon as the beautiful arrangement came through the door, all eyes were on the delivery man; everyone wondered who the lucky recipient would be. After walking around the office for a moment, the deliverer finally made his way over to one woman’s desk.
The woman had absolutely no idea that she would be getting flowers that day, and her colleagues were just as surprised as she was. Normally at this point, the woman would have been rejoicing over the brightly-colored arrangement, but this time, there was only silence. They all stared solemnly at the flowers, in complete disbelief.
As the woman who received the flowers started to read her card, she began to cry. The women around her watched in confusion. Then, one woman leaned over and whispered to Kayla, “Those are from her husband…It’s her birthday.” That’s when Kayla realized the unthinkable.
Sadly, the woman’s husband had passed away two years earlier. When he was sick, he had gone to his regular flower shop and placed an ongoing order for flowers to be delivered to her every year on her birthday and their anniversary. He wanted to make sure that his wife would be taken care of on the days that he knew would be the hardest. (Cue the popular movie "P.S. I Love You")
When the office-workers realized what had happened, they all let out soft cries. Kayla Miller then went to her Facebook account to share a beautiful message:
"I got to witness a real-life ‘P.S. I Love You’ story. These flowers were delivered to work today for a lady I work with. They are from her husband who passed away two years ago."
"Every holiday/birthday since his passing she has been receiving flowers, presents, and jewelry from him. Before he passed he lined all of this up for her so she wouldn't feel alone on those days that would be the hardest to spend apart. I am sharing this story not only because it's amazing and it warms my heart, but to show girls that true love is real."
"You don't have to settle for someone because you think no one else will love you.You don't have to put up with being cheated on or lied to or being talked down to. You are a prize to be won, and there is someone out there that will love you forever and even through the afterlife. I hope this brightens your day and P.S. I Love You."
This is truly a beautiful story about love. After sharing it to Facebook, Kayla’s post has now gone viral.
