Yellow Mums

My friend, Lynn, works in the floral department of an upscale grocery store. Yesterday, she noticed a young man standing in front of her large display of yellow mums. He didn't ask any questions, he just continued looking a the mums.

Eventually, Lynn asked if she could help him. He responded by asking if the flowers he was looking at were mums. Yes, said Lynn. The young man asked if they came in other colors. Lynn explained that they do come in many other other colors, but today, all they had was yellow mums. She mentioned the smaller mum plants in the back of the department and told him they also come in other colors, but again, all they had currently was yellow.

The young man then told Lynn his mother had died a couple days ago. He explained that before she died, his mother had told him when he sees yellow mums it was to be a message from her that she was happy, no longer in pain and in a better place.
