Seen today

As seen on a Florist sign:

Forgiveness is just a Bouquet away...

I thought that it was a lame idea.
So my question to you dear readers is this " would you ever forgive someone just because they brought you flowers?"

I wouldn't. If I needed forgiveness from someone I would do something relating to the problem. For example. If I ruined my sisters shirt I would buy a new one. If I said something offensive to some one I would verbally ask for forgiveness.

Although flowers are nice they are not for buying forgiveness

no I would not forgive someone just because they brought me flowers. But I have always wished that my husbend would send me flowers along with righting his wrong (how ever it needs to be done, in that particular circumstance). Like say if he accidentally hurt my feelings, appologize, recognise he said somethign dumb and then send me flowers too, just to make the appology that much sweeter and romantic. so maybe thats what they mean. but then there is a fine line between flowers being nice and flowers being a waste of money. and I don't want them ALL the time either. no wonder I never get them, I guess I am kind of picky. actually I like that I get them occassionaly. so any way. this was a way long comment.

Yes flowers are perfect for apoligies.

Let's say I accidently kicked in Kermit's teeth I believe a proper apology would have to include flowers.

John REFUSES to buy me flowers when I am mad for just that reason....he thinks it is stupid and knows that it won't fix anything. Like Tali I think it couldn't hurt to put me in a better mood for the apology but since he's never tried I don't know if it would help or just make me more mad, probubly make me more mad.

Hmmm... Aren't we supposed to forgive "seventy-times seven"? If we did something wrong we should try to right it and apologize. If someone did wrong to us, we should always forgive. Even if they don't ever "right the wrong" or bring flowers:)

Yes. I would forgive someone if they bought me flowers. You pretty much could buy my SOUL with flowers. That is probably because I NEVER EVER get them. OH! I got them when Morganne was born. And...that is all.

Guess maybe I need to have another kid. :P
