Me — Myself — and I

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Bouquet – Sept. 16, 2021

A BOUQUET

A Short Story to entertain! Titled: Me – Myself – and I

A party for me, myself and I, with beautiful decorations, are planned. Beautiful Bouquets will be placed here and there, along with ribbons and bows.


I love presents, and I hope I get lots and lots of gifts. Flowers too!
I am so excited! After all, it is my special day!


I need a new dress, and I hope I have a good hair day! I think I will put a bouquet of pins in my hair. I have such lovely hair, I want to show it off.


Finally, the day arrived, and everyone was coming! Everyone that I invited, that is.
I, I, and I nothing else seems important than what I want.


The sound of the doorbell ringing was music to my ears, each time, it meant a new gift for me.
The presents were all neatly stacked around the decorative bouquets, but one of them was rather strange because it was round in shape. Oh well! I wondered! Round is good. It has no end!
Upon opening the gifts and tossing them from right to left, she grabbed that box very brightly wrapped with a circular form.
What!
What kind of gift is this, a box without a bottom? Putting her hand into the package, it seemed to go down as far as she could reach; she stretched her arm but felt nothing. Raising her hand as she reached for the card; the card, she neglected to read, it said: Stop reaching DOWN to SELF, reach UP to find your BOUQUET from God.

BOUQUET of devotions — Tradition

Spiritual Bouquet a Traditional Catholic Practice

A card the giver will offer to a special loved one. In the form of a greeting card, the giver will promise to pray devotional prayers, such as one rosary just for the intention of the recipient; or two or three, etc. rosaries. The idea is that you will pray for what you write down.    BouquetOf

The recipient will appreciate the card if hand-made as will the giver having the opportunity of doing so.

When a child in Catholic school, I remember enjoying creating these unique greeting cards. Today you will find many elements for enhancing hand-made greeting cards. My guess is you already have the makings of a greeting card waiting. Remember the essential ingredient is your promise to pray.

Today is Fathers’ Day this idea of a Spiritual Bouquet would be an excellent gift for any father to receive from his child be it the child is 3 or 33 or whatever.
