Valentine’s Day just kinda creeped up on me this year. I had planned on sending flowers on line to my mother, as I have every year for the past 5 years, since my father passed away. Holidays are the hardest times for her and I try so hard to do what I can in order to make those holidays easier for her to handle and be there for her.
Since it is too late to order flowers online for her it looks like I’ll have to take a trip down to the local florist and pick up something for her the old fashioned way. I haven’t been inside a florist in so many years since I do most of my shopping and ordering via the Internet. I don’t like going into any flower shop, the smell of all of those flowers reminds me too much of a funeral home. There is no way I could ever work at a florist shop because of that feeling. So I will have to duck in and run out of there as fast as I can to pick up the flowers before stopping by the grocery store to pick up a few things before heading to my mom’s to fix her dinner, give her the flowers and watch a movie with her on this year’s Valentine’s Day.
