Man Walks Into A Coffee Shop, Hands Woman A Flower - Couldn't Believe Her Response

Danny Wakefield left the house one morning with a sunflower with him. He was struck by the idea that, instead of just letting the flower die, he should give it to someone else as a simple gesture.

Wakefield describes his motivations in a recent Facebook post: “Last night, I bought a sunflower to put on the windshield of someone I’m smitten with. After some consideration, I decided not to since we had only been on one date, the night previous. Don’t want to come off too strong, right?

Anyway, I grabbed the flower on my way out this morning with the intention to give it to someone on my way to work so it didn’t die alone. What happened next has left me changed in ways I don’t even have words for yet.

While I was sitting and drinking my morning joe at the coffee shop (which I typically take to go), I saw a woman reading something with tears quietly and quickly sliding down her pale face.

It was like there was a magnet in the sunflower that was being drawn to her, because I knew in that moment she was who I was going to give the sunflower to; she was who I had to give it to.”

He continues to describe the magical encounter: “When I got to her table I said, ‘Hey, pardon me. I have this sunflower that I was hoping to give to someone special and that someone I had in mind didn’t work out, but I can feel that you’re special, too, so I want you to have it.’

Before I could even hand her the sunflower, this complete stranger flew into my arms with tears flowing, and gratitude spewing, as if I was someone she once loved, and lost. It’s what she said next that I’m still trying to grip.

She was crying because her fiancé had died the week before, just months before they were going to get married. On their first date, he brought her a sunflower and from then on, got her sunflowers, never roses, because she was the light of his life.”

Wakefield ended his post on an upbeat note: “Today, through me, he was able to show her that she’ll always be the light of his life and how we as humans have a message to carry that goes far beyond words.”
