There are many people all around us who quietly do the most important jobs – they invest their time into others lives, show love and concern, help us through challenging times or inspire us to be better. In May, we have the opportunity to officially celebrate them and to thank them for all of their dedication. National Teachers Week is May 7-13 and National Nurses Week is recognized the same week, officially May 6-12. These observances give us the chance to reflect on where we would be without these caring individuals.
At Ah Sam Florist we love to help you to honor those whose efforts often go unsung. This May, send a gift of gratitude to someone who has made a difference in your life.
Teachers give so much of themselves. Not simply educators, they are advisors, mentors, and guidance counselors. As adults, many of us can look back and identify one or more teachers that helped to shape our life. That is an awesome responsibility – so this year, how about sending a floral design to let them know that you still think of them and that they made a real difference?
Did You Know? There is a social media campaign that coincides with National Teachers Day, which is Tuesday, May 9. Share a photo, story, or memory of a special teacher on social media along with the hashtag #ThankATeacher. National Nurses Day is the first day of a week-long celebration and takes place on May 6th. The week ends on May 12th, the birthday of Florence Nightingale. The week is set aside to recognize and applaud the role that nurses play in our society. Many people can speak to a very special nurse who was by their side during a difficult situation – not only do they bring medical expertise, but they have a kindness that permeates the room and brings comfort. Across the United States, celebrations and receptions are held to honor the work of nurses, including banquets, state and city proclamations, and seminars.But you can make this far more personal, by sending a gift to thank the one nurse who touched your life. An exquisite floral design will brighten the nurse’s station, while a delicious gourmet basket is sure to bring a smile.
This May, let Ah Sam Florist help you to give thanks to the people who have chosen to spend their lives helping others. From San Mateo to San Francisco to Silicon Valley, you can trust us for the flowers, plants and gifts that will touch their heart.
