    lovely story

    Ihope this is ok mods, i had it sent me and i just wanted to share it.



    I walked into the grocery store not particularly interested in
    buying groceries. I wasn't hungry. The pain of losing my husband
    of 57 years was still too raw. And this grocery store held so
    many sweet memories.

    He often came with me and almost every time he'd pretend to go
    off and look for something special. I knew what he was up to.
    I'd always spot him walking down the aisle with the three yellow
    roses in his hands.

    He knew I loved yellow roses. With a heart filled with grief, I
    only wanted to buy my few items and leave, but even grocery
    shopping was different since he had passed on.

    Shopping for one took time, a little more thought than it had
    for two.

    Standing by the meat, I searched for the perfect small steak and
    remembered how he had loved his steak.

    Suddenly a woman came beside me. She was blonde, slim and lovely
    in a soft green pant suit. I watched as she picked up a large
    package of T-bones, dropped them in her basket.. hesitated, and
    then put them back. She turned to go and once again reached for
    the pack of steaks.

    She saw me watching her and she smiled. "My husband loves
    T-bones, but honestly, at these prices, I don't know."

    I swallowed the emotion down my throat and met her pale blue eyes.

    "My husband passed away eight days ago," I told her. Glancing at
    the package in her hands, I fought to control the tremble in my
    voice. "Buy him the steaks. And cherish every moment you have
    together."

    She shook her head and I saw the emotion in her eyes as she
    placed the package in her basket and wheeled away.

    I turned and pushed my cart across the length of the store to
    the dairy products. There I stood, trying to decide which size
    milk I should buy. A quart, I finally decided and moved on to
    the ice cream. If nothing else, I could always fix myself an ice
    cream cone.

    I placed the ice cream in my cart and looked down the aisle
    toward the front. I saw first the green suit, then recognized
    the pretty lady coming towards me. In her arms she carried a
    package. On her face was the brightest smile! I had ever seen. I
    would swear a soft halo encircled her blonde hair as she kept
    walking toward me, her eyes holding mine.

    As she came closer, I saw what she held and tears began misting
    in my eyes. "These are for you," she said and placed three
    beautiful long stemmed yellow roses in my arms. "When you go
    through the line, they will know these are paid for." She leaned
    over and placed a gentle kiss on my cheek, then smiled again. I
    wanted to tell her what she'd done, what the roses meant, but
    still unable to speak, I watched as she walked away as tears
    clouded my vision.

    I looked down at the beautiful roses nestled in the green tissue
    wrapping and found it almost unreal. How did she know? Suddenly
    the answer seemed so clear. I wasn't alone.

    Oh, you haven't forgotten me, have you? I whispered, with tears
    in my eyes. He was still with me, and she was his angel.

    Every day be thankful for what you have and who you are.

    its called spam :roll: and most probably a chain letter

    i was waiting for the punchline
    :whistling:

    spam isnt sweet its salty lols :o)

    maybe it was a deal on yellow roses buried in there . . .

    Damn i read all that waiting for the joke at the end :x:x

    As she walked out the door she saw a sign:

    *Free bunch of yellow roses for every purchase of a Tbone steak*

    :-D

    I hate the rubbish that gets banded around in emails, I usually direct the instigator to snopes.com and tell them to stop being so ridiculously gullible .

    this little except from snopes made me laugh

    Of course, within two years that couple that followed her advice was destitute and homeless, having spent all their money on over-priced steaks instead of waiting until they were on sale (or savoring those items at special times throughout the year instead of every day).

    Seriously, is it impossible to cherish a moment with your spouse without disregarding sound financial practices? I mean, I would rather eat steak-ums now and revel in a worry free, early retirement with my spouse than eat a couple of T-bones now and have to continue working 5 or 10 extra years in our "golden time of life".
