Find any journals to pull from for quotes or even prayers for the family.
This morning I sent 6 sympathy cards in the mail.
This had weighed heavy on my heart. Three funerals and I wasn't able
to go to any. Crafting comfort words is hard. I watched my daughter
and husband stop with pen in hand and think. Each had short full sentences
right to the heart of the person we were writing. These words are to comfort.
Next hardest is Thank You notes. You have to reach in again to
find words , not common ones, to present a bouquet of gratitude before the
person you are writing. This writing is to bless.
Least hardest is Birthday cards. I wrote one of those this morning, also.
It can be hard but the card was great from Trader Joe's. This cousin
always makes me laugh so I had to find a funny one. You know you
must make a birthday card signficant. You are paying almost 50 cents
My mailbox was full as the mailman came by this morning.
I did have one letter in the stack of my mail.
From the birthday cousin!
