There are people who come into our lives – and whether for a few days, months, or years they make a lasting impact on our minds and hearts. This May, we are given the opportunity to celebrate two such people who undoubtedly have touched your life – teachers and nurses. Both are recognized in the second week of May, and both richly deserve the honor. At Adrian Durban Florist, we are privileged to have the chance to recognize the unsung heroes in your life all year long, and we look forward to creating beautiful floral designs and gifts for these worthy recipients, whether in Cincinnati or beyond.
By The Numbers: A recent census showed that coincidentally, there is almost the exact same number of nurses as teachers in the United States – 3.1 million.
“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” –Henry Brooks Adams
National Teachers Week is May 7-13.
Great teachers don’t only teach, they inspire, counsel, mentor, encourage, and set us on a path that will guide our lives. If your child has such a teacher now, or if you have always remembered a teacher from years gone by fondly – then May 9th is a great day to send them a gift to let them know that their efforts made a difference! We love bright gerberas, lilies, and roses to adorn their desk – but you can choose any floral design to say thank you! We know they’ll love it.
“Our job as nurses is to cushion the sorrow and celebrate the joy; every day, while we are ‘just doing our jobs'” – Christine Belle, RN, BSN
Nurses are by nature, givers. They give love, comfort, and strength to those in their care every day while knowing that in good situations or bad, those people will not be in their lives for very long. They must care deeply for people they just met, and let go when it is time to send them home again. They are the most caring of people and the strongest. If a nurse has experienced the joy of your new baby, or the pain of a loss right alongside you, let him or her know that they made an impact on your heart, with a beautiful floral design or delicious gift basket from our collection chosen especially for them.
There is no better way to travel through life than with gratitude. On these observances and every day, you can trust Adrian Durban Florist to create extraordinary floral designs that will touch their heart as they have touched yours.
