Last week I had the misfortune of bending over in just the wrong way and whamo!! Snapped my back right out of whack. Not a fun way to spend Memorial Day Weekend.
It would not have been so bad if it weren't for painful spasms that kept me up and walking around the house most of the night. It's amazing how quickly you can get to feeling pretty sorry for yourself. I sure did. During one of my many strolls around the house my mind wandered to balloon bouquets. I know that sounds strange but in one of my moments of "self-pity" I thought about a big bouquet of helium filled balloons. Colorful hearts, stars and circles. How fun!
Sayings such as Thinking of You, Get Well Soon, To Cheer You, You're Special not to mention, silly Smiley Faces with colorful hair came to mind. I mean, I'm a florist and work with balloons everyday. I tried to detached myself from my business and imagine what it feels like to receive one of these fun, high flying bouquets of balloons. I quickly realized that there is something uplifting about these colorful floating bubbles. Just the thought of them makes me smile, even as I write this.
Last year my shop inflated over 40,000 balloons! Now that's a lot of helium! There really is something magical about balloons. The next time you know someone who is feeling a bit down, celebrating a birthday or deserves a word of praise, why not send them a big bouquet? I can say with confidence, you'll be sending someone a smile!!
