The holidays can bring joy and excitement to individuals and families, colleagues, friends, neighbors and couples everywhere. Merriment is in the air with music, snowflakes, colorful decorations and twinkling lights. Shopping, wrapping, mailing and baking are all part and parcel of the Christmas festivities.
And just as babies enter the world in their own timing, so people depart the world in their own timing, often unexpectedly, on every day of the week, in every season. Among the joyous choruses of Christmas carols are some hurting people – men and women who have lost a loved one this year or even last week or a decade ago. Parents mourn a child taken too early, and children grieve over the loss of a parent, grandparent, relative or special person. It can be recent or not-so-recent.
Losing a loved one leaves a hole in our hearts forever. And holiday sadness does not always connect with death. Just as difficult can be the recently divorced or separated, a family rift that lingers or a friendship falling apart.
Fresh flowers are sent in sensitivity and sympathy because of their beauty, fragrance, style and the comfort they bring. Flowers from bloomstoday.com are the most fresh, the most lovingly selected and hand arranged. The sentiments of love and thinking of someone that accompany the blooms are received with gratitude, love and fond remembrance.
White flowers are the most common for their fresh purity with majestic lilies the most popular. But roses, carnations, mums and all the others carry beautiful messages of tender thoughtfulness. All flowers have meanings, but the real emotions in sending fresh flowers to someone who has lost a loved one and may find the holidays more grim than glorious are: “I am thinking of you and I love you and I care about you this time of year.”
Bloomstoday.com has raised the bar on sentiment and sympathy with attractive keepsake ornaments which accompany many of its fresh floral arrangements. Each one is suitable for displaying year round anywhere in the house, hanging from a pretty hook or leaning against a vase, framed photo or special basket.
Angel Ornament — A precious angel in the style of brushed nickel, pearl inlay and lovely faux gemstones delivers the message of a silent angel watching over you in the difficult times.
