Flowers make a great gift and one of the reasons is that they’re so flexible. We all know when they’re appropriate and most of us think we should send flowers more often than we do. And yet some people don’t send flowers at all. They claim that it’s pointless since they just die anyway; but we disagree. We think that someone who thinks that flowers are pointless is missing the point completely.

Flowers represent more than just a few pretty petals; they are a vehicle for expressing feelings and wishes for someone. It’s for these people that we write below the 8 best reasons to send flowers.

Reason #1: Sympathy

If something has recently gone wrong in someone’s life then you might want to send them flowers. It’s a nice touch to let them know that you are thinking of them in their time of need and that they’re not alone.

When I count my blessings, I count my little man twice. Having him in our lives have enriched us in so many ways we could ever imagine. Indeed, having a child is one of the best adventures anyone could ever have.

Unfortunately, not most couples are given the opportunity to have children. In fact, 15% of the population is suffering from fertility problems.

The ART of Procreation

Infertility should not be the be-all and end-all for couples, as there are means and ways to combat this.

One available method for childless couples is Assisted Reproductive Technology {ART}. This treatment procedure enables multiplication of ovarian follicles and facilitates egg cell retrieval. During the process, embryos will be formed outside the body of a female patient and will be transferred once the “cultures” are successfully formed. Patients who are suffering from severe sperm deficits, blocked fallopian tubes, unexplained infertility, mild endometriosis, and ovulation disorders can be candidates for this treatment.
