They Gave Me Flowers!

Filed under: Day to Day Life — aliceaudrey @ 10:52 am

After all these years of serving as stage manager, not only did the instructor finally start calling me stage manger, she gave me flowers on closing night!  It was soooooo cool!  She had someone take away the flowers I was handing out to all the little kids, dragged me out to the middle of the stage, put a spot light on us, and introduced me to the audience.  Not only did they actually applaud me, but afterwards several people congratulated me on a good job!  Thing was, this was one of the easiest years.

I accept this accolade as a reward for all my time of service and would like to say “This is so cool!  Thank you!”



  1. so cool…as a nurse i always wonder why people have to be sick before someone gives them flowers. we should all make it a point to give flowers and the wonderful feelings they bring….more often!!!

  3. I gave all the flowers to my dd, who gets into flower arrangements.

    Hi Tracya! I started getting flowers from my dh only a few years ago when I made it clear I wouldn’t simply assume he was guilty of something just because he gave them to me. You should see what I got for Valentines! I kept the balloon.

  4. I have lots and lots of roses in my garden. Each year for mom’s day, I ask for another rose bush. The one I got this year is yellow with red tips on the petals. It hasn’t bloomed yet, but all my others have.

    Congrats on being a stage manager! I always like being a helper mom for my daughter’s activities. . . and I’ll probably joyfully participate with my sons’ activities when they get old enough.

  5. You’re right, Alice. That is so cool! I’m glad it went smoothly. I guess this means they’ll want you to do it again next year, too. 🙂
