One day I went to a store to get some needed items for my family.
I gathered up my goodies and headed for the 1 counter, only to be 2 in the narrow aisle (通道) by a young man who 3 to be about sixteen years old. I wasn’t in a hurry, so I 4 waited for the boy to realize that I was there. It was obvious now, he was mentally 5 and a little shocked as he turned and saw me standing so 6 to him, waiting to 7 . I said, “Hey Buddy, what’s your name?”
“My name is Denny and I’m 8 with my Mommy,” he responded proudly.“Wow,” I said, “that’s a(n) 9 name; I wish my name was Denny, but my name is Steve. How old are you Denny?”
“How old am I now, Mommy?” he asked his mother as she slowly 10 from the next aisle. “You’re fifteen years old, Denny”. Then he headed toward the toy section.
Denny’s mom 11 me for taking the time to talk with her son. She told me that most people wouldn’t 12 look at him, much less talk to him.
I told her that it was my 13 and that there are plenty of red, yellow, and pink roses in God’s Garden; 14 , “Blue Roses” are very 15 and should be appreciated 16 their beauty and distinctiveness.
You see, Denny is a Blue Rose and 17 someone doesn’t stop and 18 that rose with their heart and touch that rose with their kindness, then they’ve 19 a blessing from God. So, the next time you see a BLUE ROSE, don’t turn your head and walk off. 20 to smile and say Hello.
