Flowers Are Not Overrated

But Boy, Did I Use To Think So.

I loved this article called, "Why Real Men DO Buy Women Flowers" - so grab a bunch or a dozen and give them to a woman (or me - I'll take 'em gladly!)

My favorite part:

"My dad knew that buying a gift for that person who'll laugh at your terrible jokes, kiss you with lips and breath, and hold your hand as a needle searches for your vein is just a way of saying "I'm thinking about you when you're not here."

And that's what flowers are, just a simple, easy way of letting someone know they were in your thoughts. That's it. It's not complicated. Flowers announce: out of sight, still in my mind and heart. It is unerringly human to want to know that someone is thinking about you when you are not around."
