Veterans Day: Honoring the Brave

At the 11th hour of the 11th day in the 11th month of 1918, the big battles of World War I were halted, marking the conclusion of what was thought to be “the war to end all wars.” If only. The following year, President Woodrow Wilson, the 28th president of the United States and previous president of Princeton University, proclaimed November 11 as the first holiday to “be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country‚Äôs service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice … .”

October in Pink ….. Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Among the traditional autumn shades of red and scarlet, gold and yellow, pumpkin, marmalade and earthy browns are pops of pink commemorating Breast Cancer Awareness Month. From socks, sneakers and sweaters, to police cars, hats, flowers and ribbons, this most feminine of colors expresses courage, hope and strength for the tens of thousands or one in eight women who have or may experience breast cancer. Many are victorious. Many are not. The statistics bear out a grim prediction: More than 250,000 cases will be diagnosed this year in women; more than 2,400 in men.

Wife-Appreciatione-Day

Wife Appreciation Day ~ September 17

One of the most moving sentiments one can say about having a wife is to remember that this lady, of all the men she ever knew, chose you to spend the rest of her life with … and your part is to love, cherish and care for her across the years. Time marches through children and grandchildren, joy and sorrow, sickness and health and moments of passion, career changes and all of life’s challenges.

Back-To-School-Roses

Back to School Blooms

The “Back to School” mantra conjures up images of new outfits, backpacks, lunch boxes and Facebook photos, along with school work, homework, parents’ work and a teacher’s work. It seems fitting that “Back to School” falls around Labor Day, as school begins mid or late August in some parts of the country and after Labor Day in others.

Time to Say I’m Sorry … with Flowers

It takes a big heart and a humble spirit to acknowledge that someone is hurt because of something you did or said ~ or did not do and did not say. Beyond working to dissolve conflict and mend hurt feelings, the apology expresses concern for the potentially aggrieved party and a sincere desire acknowledge your wrong and restore communication and connection.

Fourth-Of-July

Flowers, Fun and Fireworks

The American 4th of July is a holiday like no other, and although a 3-day weekend is the norm, it is always celebrated on the fourth day in July. There are outward expressions of patriotism in flag waving and parades and inward thankfulness for the freedoms we enjoy. Community bands belt out all-American music, and families and friends gather in small towns and big cities to celebrate freedom. Flags line streets on posts and hang from overpasses while BBQ grills are fired up, and Americans celebrate independence from sea to shining sea.

Easter-Flowers

Easter Food, Flowers and Friendship

Easter is glorious for celebrating the risen Jesus Christ in Christian circles and embracing the reality of rebirth, regeneration and springtime in full swing. People are starting to open windows on warm fresh air days and till the ground for grandiose garden plans. The home centers are ripe with new plants, herbs, flowers, shrubs and all manner of landscaping options. The wardrobe of grays and reds is moved aside for pastel colors, light sweaters, sturdy sneakers and a simple parka by the door. It’s a happy time to emerge once and for all from any figurative, seasonal hibernation.

He loves me, he loves me not, she loves me, she love me not — what better way to be assured of someone’s true love than pulling petals off a daisy? Probably not the most accurate way to measure love, but no doubt daisies have passed through many a hand the world over seeing where the last petal lands for “loves me” or “loves me not.”
