Narcotics professor, florist found faithTuesday, October 30, 2018
A few years ago, she took a class on floraldesign. By happenstance, her teacher was a social worker who donated flowers towomen’s shelters. Sale fell in love with floristry and spent three years offand on at a floral design school in Manhattan. She also volunteered arrangingflowers at women’s shelters. “It was the first time (the women) ever hadflowers. Can you imagine?” she said. “They would come up to me and cry. I wouldteach them and I would say, ‘Put them next to your bedside because you deserveflowers — always remember that.’ ” Now she has her own small business — Sandi’sFloral Creations. A few years ago, Sale took her flowersand retired to the beach. But after six months, she found she was miserable. Soher brother invited her to stay with his family for a while. One Sunday, shejoined them for Mass at St. Leo the Great Church in Fairfax. “Everybody seemed so peaceful, and thewelcoming was amazing,” she said. “I said, ‘What planet is this?’ And mybrother goes, ‘That’s our faith.’ I said, ‘How do I get that?’ ” So Sale wasback in the classroom again, this time attending RCIA. In 2017, she wasreceived into the church. Sale’s Catholic faith is “the best giftI’ve ever had,” and so she uses her talents to give back to the church. Sale arrangesthe flowers for the altar at St. Leo Church and occasionally at diocesanevents. She likes to volunteer with the youth group and is a member of the Legionof Mary. “It is finally a place where I feel Ibelong. I was meant to be here, and the joy I have every day from belonging andfinding my path is more than I can ever say,” said Sale. Her hope is to bringpeople the light of Christ through all she does. “I waited 60-some years to getthis gift — I want to shout it from the treetops.” ... https://www.catholicherald.com/News/Catholic_Living/Narcotics_professor,_florist_found_faith/

Volunteers band together to revive recycled-bouquet programTuesday, October 30, 2018
Random Acts of Flowers: Blossom Buddies in Menlo Park and Flowers of Comfort in San Jose.
Many of the volunteers have maintained their earlier relationships with local donor retailers, florists and markets.
"There's nothing that excites us as much as a bucket of day-old or week-old flowers," said Palo Alto resident Barbara Levin, as the group cheered the arrival of a new bucket of leftovers from Mills Florist. Levin is a longtime volunteer who routinely collects cast-offs from Trader Joe's in Palo Alto. Others pick up from Trader Joe's in Menlo Park and a branch of Whole Foods.
"We never know what flowers or vases we're going to have to work with, so every time we come in it's a new and interesting experience and it's a way of showing off our creative side," Levin said.
The women have no trouble unpacking funeral wreaths and other event-specific arrangements to "create something more interesting," Klause said. But in some cases the used flowers are not fresh enough for a second life and must be discarded.
Volunteer Sandra Bachman, a Woodside resident, said her favorite place to deliver is Stanford University Hospital.
"To go in and see patients that do not have any flowers or visitors and walk in with a bouquet and for five minutes they forget about their problems," Bachman said. "They open their eyes and to get that smile, and to hear through that family what a difference that can make for healing ... A lot of the nurses say it helps them heal. It brings the outside in, the sunshine in."
