Few things in life bring as much joy to both sender and receiver as taking time to send flowers to someone you care about. It is a simple act, and not very expensive, yet the recipient will be delighted to be remembered, and since flowers will last many days, they will enjoy the memory a long time.
One can send flowers in a number of ways. Visiting a local florist, where actual samples can be viewed, is certainly a great “hands on” method. However, many florists are now accessible on the World Wide Web, enabling customers to send flowers from just about anywhere, any time of any day. During business hours, you can also send flowers with a simple telephone call to a florist in your neighborhood, or the neighborhood where you are sending them.
Some occasions are less enjoyable, such as illness, surgery, or death. In these situations, sometimes all we can do is send flowers and a note to express our care and concern. Still, this simple act of compassion and caring can bring joy to the entire family on the receiving side. If the recipient is in a hospital, consider using the gift shop in the hospital, as they will be able to help ensure appropriateness of the type of flowers. So, for occasions of shared joy or grief, or “just because” - whenever the urge strikes to bring a smile to someone around the corner or across the country, remember there is joy in this simple act – send flowers!
