A little girl admired the flowers at the supermarket and told her mom that she was going to buy herself some pretty flowers. “No, hon, people receive flowers from others. They don’t buy them for themselves,” replied her young mother.
While I understand that convention states that people should wait to receive flowers from others, what is wrong with brightening your day with a bunch of sunflowers, orchids, or roses you purchased for yourself?
I am lucky enough to have been on the giving and receiving end of a few bouquets, but I have no guilt in admitting I have purchased my own fresh flowers for the dining table.
So on this Valentine’s Day, let us celebrate love itself. Flowers for everyone!
