May is a big month for women; we’ve got Mother’s Day, National Nurses Day and National Teachers Day all in the first couple of weeks. Since these last two reflect fields mostly dominated by women, we can safely say that this is really a time to appreciate and honor the strongest women in our lives. Peoples Flower Shops thinks these super ladies should be feted and thanked all year long, but this is definitely the moment to make your gratitude concrete. We’ve come up with two ideal gifts for the women who educate, nurture, protect and otherwise empower the rest of us.
Let’s face it, we’re all busy. As we rush through our days from errand to errand and task to task, sometimes we forget to slow down long enough to see the amazing people around us. The second week in May gives us the opportunity to recognize the quiet yet heroic work of two such people in our lives. Although they aren’t always thanked or applauded, they deserve recognition. Here at Peoples Flowers, we love our Albuquerque community – and we love our teachers and nurses. We’d love to help you to honor them this May, with special gifts that are sure to express your gratitude beautifully.
