Here we are, nearing the month end of February. I know it’s our shortest month, but this year it seems exceptionally long. Isn’t it funny how zero degrees Celsius with no wind can sound sooo very warm and inviting…lol. We should look on the bright side ... 3 more days till March, and then hopefully the worst should be over.
March brings with it many wonderful things. Our clocks go forward (daylight saving time) on March 9th. This means the sun will light our sky till , bringing spring that much closer to us. Now doesn’t that just warm you up, and make you smile just thinking about it? But before that happens, to be precise, exactly a day before, on March 8th, is International Women’s Day!! This is a very special day as well. It is a day to celebrate the achievements, the hardship, the support, the courage and love that women throughout the ages have done, and continue to do.
Women have contributed greatly to our way of life as it is today. There have been a great number of notable women through history, such as Marie Curie, Amelia Earhart, Florence Nightingale, Golda Meir, Valentina Tereshkova, Joan of Arc and Susan B. Anthony just to name a few. But this day is not only to commemorate those in history, but every woman. That means your mother, your sister, your daughter, your co-worker, your friend, even that lady crossing guard who holds the stop sign outside in the cold of winter…
ALL WOMEN. So how do we celebrate International Women’s Day, why with flowers of course.
What better way to say “Happy International Women’s day” than giving a bouquet of flowers to the women in your life. You simply can’t go wrong with flowers, especially this time of year when it’s so cold and wintery, it’s like a promise of spring to the people we appreciate.
International Women’s Day is widely observed in
Europe, even more than Valentine ’s Day here. Though it is slowly becoming much better known and popular here in North America as well. I think that there are so many women that affect our lives each and everyday, why not acknowledge them. Besides, there is nothing better than making a woman smile, and also appreciate you and your thoughtfulness. See, it’s a win win situation!
Now many of you may not know what kind of flowers to give, I don’t think it really matters. All flowers are beautiful when given from the heart.
So happy International Women’s day to all the women out there, hope you enjoy the day and receive lots of flowers from those around you.
