Tom was flying into LAX tomorrow morning and Rose would be there to meet him.
“But how will I know which one is you?” Tom texted.
“I’ll be wearing a yellow rose,” she responded.
Anticipation,anxiety, fear, curiosity and other emotions kept disturbing Rose’s attempts to sleep the night before.
Rose awoke early the next morning remembering to pin on her yellow rose as she got ready.
She nervously arrived at the airport forty-five minutes before the flight was due. She found herself packed in the middle of the crowd.
her anxious thoughts began to dissolve into ones of doubt.She was a beautiful woman on the inside as well as outside. But no man in her past ever appreciated her inner qualities only her outer beauty. This led to her experiencing much pain. Would Tom fall into that category?
Would Tom like her for only her outward beauty? Would he continue to like her as her external beauty fades with age? Had she made a mistake coming here?
The passengers began disembarking the plane and were flooding into the terminal.
She spotted an unattractive homeless woman and an idea popped into her head. She went over to her and quickly pinned her rose onto her.
She then stood back to see what Tom would do, if anything.
A tall nice looking gentleman approached the homeless woman.
He gave her flowers, a hug and a kiss on the cheek.
Somehow, Rose knew everything was going to be just fine.
