A Newlywed Couple Delivers Their Wedding Flowers to Others Needing a Little Bit of Joy
Chance and Hannah Buckner got married on September 19th, and instead of throwing out all the flower arrangements used in the ceremony, the couple decided to give them away. They hoped a small bouquet would provide a little bit of joy and lift the spirits of anyone going through a hard time.
Hannah put out a post on Facebook asking if anyone wanted some free flowers.
She wrote: “I would like to deliver these to anyone needing a lift in their spirits. If anyone knows of someone going through a tough time, an elderly or disabled person that is alone on their street, even if you’ve never talk to them but just see them occasionally. Please message me their address and I will deliver a flower arrangement to them with an encouraging note.”
To Hannah’s amazement, she received over a hundred comments and private messages from her post. People were nominating others for the small gift, wanting to give those they knew a happy surprise. Those nominated included: patients battling COVID-19, cancer, recent losses, a teacher going through a rough patch, or someone a friend felt was lonely.
Hannah and Chance got to work and spent six hours delivering flowers to roughly 20 locations near San Angelo, Texas.
“We delivered to numerous loved ones, friends and coworkers of people in the community all going through different things in their lives,” Hannah said. “We had a few people cry, got some hugs and many thank you’s. We had one lady hug us and cry and that one person made it all worth it.”
“I know I always enjoy getting flowers, so we just wanted to spread that same joy to others in need. Chance and I are believers and simply wanted to do what God tells us to do, which is to love and spread love to your neighbors.”
