The night before, Danny hit it off with somebody special and decided to leave a sunflower on his crush's car on his way to work. But at the last minute, Danny got the jitters. He had only been on one date with his love interest and realized the move would have been too much. So, not wanting the flower to go to waste, he decided to gift it to someone else instead.
At the time, Danny was sitting in his local coffee shop. Nearby was a woman reading and silently crying. And like a magnet, something pulled Danny toward her. He knew she was the one who needed his sunflower, but he just didn't know why.
Scroll down to read Danny's beautiful story. You never know what a stranger needs and how an act of kindness will affect them.
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."
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."
Please feel free to share this, and a little extra love.
I dare you do the same and give a sunflower to someone you don’t know. Be a part of the good; be a part of the #sunflowerchallenge."
