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.
Dates to Remember: National Nurses Week is May 6 – 13, 2017; National Nurses Day is May 6.
National Teachers Week is May 7 – 13, 2017; National Teachers Day is May 9.
Teachers are among the most influential people in our lives. In fact, if you ask adults about who inspired and encouraged them growing up, a teacher usually makes the list. Teachers are far more than educators – they are mentors, dreamers, cheerleaders, and benefactors. They spot the potential in a child or young adult and draw it out. They invest time, talent and heart into growing young lives. And for that, we think they deserve the highest accolades! Vivid spring flowers in colorful containers are the perfect way to deliver joy and happiness to an awesome teacher!
Famous Teachers: Author J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame, musician, performer, and lyricist Sting; and comedian Billy Crystal are among the many famous celebrities who made a living as teachers before their big break. Thankfully, the very best teachers consider education both their calling and their lifetime vocation.
From the joy of welcoming a new baby to the sadness of a loved one’s illness – nurses are by our sides through life’s most emotional and meaningful times. A superhuman blend of compassion, patience, empathy and professional expertise, the men and women of nursing are a rare breed. Although we rarely spend more than a short period of time with them, they make a lasting imprint on our hearts. This National Nurses Day, let them know that what they do matters, by sending a beautiful and bright arrangement or gourmet gift basket.
