Time To Appreciate Teachers & Nurses

May gives us the opportunity to appreciate teachers and recognize nurses. Why are these two professions so worthy of our accolades? Because both are committed to positively influencing the world – they invest time, concern, talent and love into everyone they come in contact with. This is why Breen’s Florist is proud to help you to honor these special people on their special days – May 9 is National Teachers Day, and May 6 is National Nurses Day.

Did You Know? There are approximately 3.1 million nurses and about the same number of teachers in the United States. But we think that none are quite so amazing as our local Houston area professionals!

“When you’re a nurse you know that every day you will touch a life – or a life will touch yours.” – Unknown

Nurses are angels with stethoscopes, caregivers with nerves of steel. They are a powerful combination of empathy and practicality, expertise and comfort. Anyone who has spent time in a hospital knows that it is the nurses who make the difference. This May 6, send a beautiful floral design to the nurse – or nurses – who touched your life. Although we sometimes only spend a few days or weeks together, the imprint on our hearts is permanent. 

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” -Henry Brooks Adams

Teachers are at once scientists and authors, mathematicians and counselors. They guide and mentor, encourage and inspire, and have almost unbelievable patience and commitment. If you wish to give credit to your favorite teacher past or present, share a photo or story to social media on March 9th, and don’t forget the hashtag #ThankATeacher. In this way, you’ll be joining with people all over the country looking to acknowledge the important work of our educators. Of course, they would also love a beautiful bouquet of flowers or a delicious basket of gourmet treats. After all, who doesn’t love to be recognized for the work they do? There are so many people in our lives every day who quietly work to make a difference. We are thrilled to have the chance to help you in honoring them today and every day. Breen’s Florist is your local hometown source for the very best appreciation gifts and flowers!
