Rose Petals for Health

The teenage and adult children of a middle-aged couple arranged for a weekend stay at the Ibis Bed and Breakfast for their parents and when they arrived beforehand with a dozen flowers, a bottle of wine, and dinner for two for their mom and dad, the room was prepared as a kingly castle.    A daughter asked if she could drop some rose petals on the bed before they arrived, which she did.  It wasn’t until later that I found out the father was about to undergo extensive chemotherapy the day after they left the Ibis.   With tears in my eyes, I was more than happy to pick up the rose petals when they left, and wish him good health.
