A roseA friend gave me a rose today. A yellow rose. A rose of friendship.
It was a pleasant surprise, a really sweet gesture. Unexpected. Un-asked for. And because of that, it is really heart-warming as well.
It makes me think… it is simple things like that, coming from the heart, which shows how much the person cares about our friendship. Thank you (you know who you are :) [hug])
It makes me think as well, that really, it is usually the simple things, the little things that people do when they do not expect the world to be watching, that could tell you so much about who they really are.
But then, yet again, a person's true strength of character is only tested and revealed when obstacles come their way. The bigger the obstacle overcome, the stronger the character revealed.
Mankind is really complex. No one word can describe them. No one idea can define them.
