For a limited time only, internet customers can use 1800Flowers coupon which entitles them to 10% off their purchase. That is a little more than most states' sales tax, and, at around 40 bucks a arrangement, can make quite a difference in the final price. So why not brighten someone's day with a gorgeous bouquet? If you are looking for a recipient, I would be happy to volunteer.

Every year for the last four, my husband has given me a long stem rose for every year of marriage. This year, I also got one yellow rose to represent the baby daughter born to us two months ago. My DH may not be 1800 Flowers best customer, but this special added touch really moved me. Thanks honey.

In a recent interview with Reader's Digest about his newly published book, Frank Hanna III discusses the role of the current economic crisis plays in the fostering giving. The message I got from the interview was the mindfulness we are all now directing at our own finances should also be directed at our giving. As Hanna stated in the interview, giving shows our humanity and brings out the best in all of us, especially in times like these.

One big difference I have noticed and have learned to compensate for is the difference in when Mother's Day is celebrated.To my shock, Mother's day gifts and cards hit the shelves in February this year here in the UK. That is because Mothering Sunday (as it is known here) traditionally falls on the fourth Sunday of Lent. So I buy all my cards early and stockpile them until May to send home.
Mothers day gifts and cards from the UK are such a novelty with my Mom and Step-Mom back home. They always get a giggle when they see captions with 'Mum' and 'Mummy'. Gifts for mothers day otherwise aren't really all that different from what we have in the States. They just don't have the luxury and convenience of 1800 Flowers like we do. Thankfully, though, Father's Day is the same as ours!

“Discipline trains you to put up with disappointments, every rose has a thorn.”
- Sri Sathya Sai Baba (Indian Spiritual Leader)
This quote really talks about the duality of life. Nothing can ever be entirely good or entirely bad. Everything has negative and positive points, even the most beautiful of flowers.
Another great thinker, the Lebanese born American philosophical poet and essayist Kahlil Gibrahn, had this to say about roses :
“The optimist sees the rose and not its thorns; the pessimist stares at the thorns, oblivious to the rose.”
Like Sathya Sai Baba, this quote speaks about the dual nature of life and how we chose to see things. We can chose to ignore the bad sides or the good sides of any life situation.
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day!

Now, my guy is wonderful and takes great care of me. But he comes from another country and there, it just isn't traditional to give roses for valentines or generally many gifts for that matter. I can't really hold that against him, but I also can't help but want some old-fashioned romance now and then.
Maybe instead of pining away for some Valentines Day roses I should just tell him how I feel. Or better yet I could just call 1-800 Flowers and order those flowers for myself.
