I have a question regarding my peace lily. I received my peace lily at the memorial service for my baby girl. At the time, it had a few blooms on it, and we brought it home and I replanted it. Since then, it has never stopped blooming. Currently, it has 12 blooms. It normally averages around 6-12 blooms at a time, and has been blooming for 13 months now. I was just wondering if this is something special, as everything I read says peace lilies are supposed to bloom twice a year for a couple months. I sing to my plant, water him, and wash his leaves, but don't use any chemicals or fertilizers on him. Thank you for any information you can send me! I've attached a picture of my peace lily. :)

You have a happy Peace Lily.
There are many different varieties of this plant, some are good bloomers, some rarely bloom.
Most Peace Lily plants are forced into blooming by applications of chemicals at the grower level. Once those flowers fade, the plant can be confused and have trouble blooming again.
When you repotted your plant, that was likely the trigger for you plant to wake up and began a flower cycle.
That combined with a great growing environment has led to your success and a beautiful specimen.
