Delivering happiness

 

Lexie and her "pink Lily"

 

Today my two-and-a-half year old and I were driving through Chatham and we drove by Pizazz.

She said, “There’s Mommy’s work!” and then asked “What you do there?”

To sum it up as simply as I could for her,

I said “I help make people happy by giving them flowers

I was instantly overwhelmed at the truth of my own words.

In what other industry would you light up a child’s face with birthday balloons, create a beautiful floral tribute to honour a beautiful life and design the wedding of a young woman’s dream all in one day?

I wake up happy to go to work everyday to face the challenges and entertainment of our industry.

Is my job easy? No.

Stress free? Not by a long shot.

But when I can get into bed at night and know that I helped turn someone’s crummy day into a happy one, I sleep a little more soundly.

And who knows, maybe my little girl will follow me into the floral biz. From the looks of it, she can’t get enough flowers.
