"I've learned that people will forget what you said and forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel." ~Maya Angelou
When I think about our gift shop, I think about the people who come through just looking for a distraction. Maybe they're an employee who has been through a difficult time with patient. Maybe it's the patients family, looking for a way to brighten up a hospital room. When they enter the shop, we want to change the way they feel. By offering bright, colorful flowers, balloons and other gifts we are hoping to lighten spirits and provide a couple of ways to make our guests smile.
Life can be hard. It can be difficult. And everyone has a bad day. If through our gift shop we can be that little "oasis of caring" and make people feel a little bit better, then we've done our job well. I'm so excited for us to launch this new website, and give everyone a fun new place to "click" to see all the great gifts and treasures our shop has to offer. And while the internet can't give you a hug, we hope all the good intentions we hold will shine through our pages, and make your day just a little bit brighter.
