Glad

The word glad is defined as “delighted” or “pleased.”

Gladiolus or gladioli originate from the Latin for small sword, in reference to their leaf shape.  In Old English, the flowers were known as “gladdon.”

It doesn’t matter where the word originated, glads make me glad. Judging by the number of customers choosing their stems of glads at the farmer’s market today, glads make them glad too.

Is there not a happier sight than a bunch of glads peeking out of a market bag?  How about a truckload of them passing by?
