CARLE PLACE, N.Y., May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mother's Day is a time to celebrate mom and the special place she has held in our societal and family structure for countless years. It is a time to express gratitude towards mom for her unconditional love and dedication. This year, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, INC. (NASDAQ: FLWS) the leading destination of gourmet foods and floral gifts for all occasions, encourages everyone to reflect on their childhood under mom's nurturing eye and share fond memories of the classic "MOM-isms" that helped shape who you've become. After all, even in adulthood, many rely on mom's wisdom, expertise and advice as one of their core guiding forces every day.
MOM-isms are unique and distinct characteristics that trigger memories of mom. From quirky expressions and funny catch phrases that you find yourself adopting to sage advice that always rings true, our moms have notable qualities that are frequently repeated and often times we find ourselves replicating them in our daily lives. While MOM-isms can manifest themselves in a lot of ways, they always serve as pleasant reminders of mom and the significant contribution she made in shaping the person you have blossomed into today.
In honor of Mother's Day, 1-800-Flowers.com released findings from a survey that shared MOM-ism phrases that people remember most fondly. It's not a surprise that nearly eight out of 10 people (79 percent) shared that their mom says one or more of the following MOM-ism expressions, ranked by most commonly used:
- "Because I said so" – 43 percent
- "Don't worry; everything will be ok" – 40 percent
- "You'll always be my baby" – 35 percent
- "I'm always here to listen" – 28 percent
- "You're stronger than you think you are" – 26 percent
The honorable mentions were "This too shall pass" (20 percent) and "Oh, is THAT what you're wearing?" (17 percent)
This year, seize Mother's Day as a perfect opportunity to show mom just how much you appreciate her unconditional love, caring nature and her classic go-to MOM-isms. 1-800-Flowers.com, has a fresh, new Mother's Day Collection that is sure to help you deliver a smile on mom's big day and celebrate every MOMent together.
