On February 17th, internationally recognized Random Acts of Kindness Day gives us all the opportunity to make our world a kinder and gentler place. Because of what we do, French Florist is privileged to celebrate spreading the happiness and joy every day ' but on this special occasion set aside for deliberate acts of generosity and compassion, we are eager to assist by adding the beauty of our flowers and designs.
Showing and spreading kindness has been shown to have a strong and positive effect on both parties, not only the recipient. Just ask Bethany, a seventh-grader who recorded people as she told them her assignment was to film things she found beautiful. She captured on film the moment their uninterested stare turned into an elated smile that lit up their entire face. Not only did she brighten the day of everyone she met, she found that she was encouraged to spread more kindness because she felt so good about making other people feel good!
So how can you brighten a day? Flowers have been scientifically proven to make people happy, and there are plenty of people in your life who would love to be surprised with a fun bouquet of daisies or tulips ' your assistant at work, the receptionist at your child's school, or even the toll booth operator who has a smile for you every morning. Buy a bouquet and hand out individual stems to random strangers on the street ' imagine the joy you could generate!
We could all use a little more kindness. So whether leaving a gas gift card at the pump, dropping by a neighbor's house with a fresh batch of brownies, or bringing flowers to a co-worker, we know you'll be the one who finds happiness! At French Florist, we're behind you all the way, with all the flowers you'll need to light up your world.
