Sending Flowers… Are You?

Sending flowers, if you think about it, how often do you go to the florist to pick up flowers?  Could you say hardly ever?  More likely than not that is a true statement.  Unless it is a corsage for a special date or the boutonnière for the prom; we rarely pick up the flowers we order, we send them.  Most of the time we need to send them rather than pick them up ourselves.  When you order flowers for a funeral, you really don’t want to pick them up, and deliver them to the funeral home.  If you did, somebody somewhere would most likely think you had lost your mind – it’s just not done.

On Valentine’s Day, there are many wives whose husbands would be in BIG TROUBLE, if their wives do not see a bouquet of a dozen red roses coming through the door of their office with their name on them.  If you work in an office with a lot of women, the door to that office needs to be a revolving door for all the flower deliveries on Valentines Day!

Sending flowers has become a good habit for us.  Mother’s Day is a popular time to send flowers.   By sending flowers, you have just bridged the gap of numerous miles.  It doesn’t matter how far away you are; those flowers made those miles seem so shorter when you sent Mom those flowers. Remember when you send flowers you are really sending more than flowers – you are sending a little piece of you: a smile, a hug, an “I’m thinking of you.”

Sending flowers is usually one of the best ways to brighten someone’s day, and for some unknown reason having the flowers sent is so much better than delivering them to the door yourself.  So the next time you need to send something that says you care.  Send flowers.  Maybe Grandma’s next birthday, or your wife who is having a rough day.  Flowers remind them of how much you really do care.
