“An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.”

 I love receiving cards.. the simple thought that someone is thinking of me can make a bad day great!  My mom and sister-in-law are great about sending cards for every occasion.  My mom sends me random cards just because she loves me.  It always seems that I receive a card just when I need to...bad days, sad days, good days...just because days! (God works in mysterious ways!!)  Our society has gotten away from handwritten "snail mail."  A handwritten card or letter means so much more. Do you send out cards?   

After we lost Braxton, we got LOTS of cards.  It was the cards that were sent in the weeks and months after the service that meant so much.  It just seems like after a memorial service, everyone goes back to everyday life and the loss is somehow lost in the midst.  The pain of loss seems to be worse after everything settles.  The real reality of the situation can take weeks to sink in, and during those times, a kind word means the most. 

I recently received the Simply Marvelous card collection from DaySpring to review.  The kind words and sweet verses are amazing.  As I was reading through each card, names of friends and family came to mind.  I can't wait to sit and write a simple message to brighten a friend's day. 

Day to day life can be stressful at times.  Do you know someone who could use kind words to cheer them up?  Do you know someone who has recently lost a loved one?   Why not send them a card with just simple words like "I am thinking of you."  It just may make a bad day good!!
