Our grandchildren accept us for ourselves, without rebuke or effort to change us, as no one in our entire lives has ever done, not our parents, siblings, spouses, friends — and hardly ever our own grown children. ~Ruth Goode
An old Welsh proverb supposes that an individual does not know perfect love until they have a grandchild. Ask any grandparent, and chances are that they will heartily agree. September 10 is a day set aside to honor your favorite Nana or MiMi, Pop-Pop or Gramps – with Grandparents Day bouquets from Julia’s Florist. After decades of delivering flowers throughout the Wilmington area for all types of occasions, we know a thing or two about the love between family members – and we look forward to helping you to honor these very special people.
Young at Heart – Although you may think of a gray haired lady in a rocker when you hear the word “grandparent”, the average age at which Americans become grandparents is 48, This means that they are more than young and energetic enough to keep up with the kids – at least for a little while! The relationship between grandparent and grandchild is one of life’s most precious – but it can also have a great impact on the young one’s life. Studies show that children who grew up with frequent access to an involved grandparent in their life entered adulthood as a more confident, happy and secure person.
Spoiling the Grandkids – Most adult children suspect that their mom and dad are far more generous as grandparents than they ever were as parents- and they are right. Grandparents spend over $50 billion dollars per year on fun gifts for the grandchildren, and over $32 billion dollars annually to help pay for their education.
If you want to thank your grandma and grandpa for all they have meant to you – or to thank your parents for all their help with the kids – look no further than Julia’s Florist. We have the Grandparents Day bouquets that will convey all of your love and heartfelt emotion. Browse online, or call us today!
