I wholeheartedly believe that, even in the hardest of times, even when nothing seems to be going right and the future appears blurry, we as humans have the power to look at things and find the light. You know what they say: even the darkest cloud has a silver lining. And this story is about exactly that.

This Monday, November 2, after a long day at work, the staff of the Perpignan hospital in France got treated to a pleasant surprise—every single car in the hospital’s parking lot had a lovely flower bouquet placed on it.

Turns out, it was a woman named Murielle Marenac who decided to surprise the essential workers during these difficult times.

Murielle Marcenac is a florist and she runs a flower salon called Marcenac Fleurs. Unfortunately, because of the whole COVID-19 situation, her salon had to be closed down. Instead of feeling defeated, though, the woman decided to make the best of the situation.

After her business was forced to be closed down, instead of throwing away all the prepared deliveries, the florist decided to gift them to the healthcare workers at the Perpignan hospital.

“I had to make a decision, and I didn’t want to waste the flowers. Instead of crying, I told myself that we had to make people smile, especially at times like these,” the 38-year-old florist told Huffpost.

“They thank me for my support and my approach because at the moment it’s complicated. They need it, we have to support each other at times like these and not get angry,” Murielle Marcenac told Huffpost.

And apparently, the woman isn’t planning on stopping yet. Murielle Marcenac would like to repeat the gesture at other local hospitals to use up the rest of the unsold flowers.
