My husband hasn't been feeling his best recently - when I think back - I honestly can't remember one day when he felt absolutely well. It sure has been quite awhile. It's difficult to keep motivated when you are sick and as I said earlier, I don't know how he keeps inspired on those difficult days.
The thought behind the card is what counts the most. Yes, the verse is necessary, but knowing a friend or family member actually took the time to let you know they cared is what definitely inspires someone who is not feeling well. A card is something that can remain in a room endlessly for all to see and it's something there for those not feeling well to look at when they come into a room to remind them that someone cares. Everyone needs support, we all need each other at some point in our lives and sending a card seems to be such a simple act of kindness for those who need it most.
Dealing with cancer is NOT easy - not by any means of the imagination. It's a road where one hour you may feel good and the next, you may feel terrible. If your loved one or someone you know has cancer, why not go and get them a card today, to show how much you care.
I'm off to get our mail - who knows, maybe there's a card for my husband there today. If so, he will certainly be uplifted!
