Sometimes The Message
Is Simply I Am Thinking Of You
It can be very difficult at times
to know what to say. Sometimes the only thing to say is I
am thinking of you. When I was searching
for a card to send a sick relative, I had a difficult time because
all the cards were about getting well, feeling cheery and getting
over the ailment. In this case, this person will never get better
so a Get Well Soon card wasnt going to work. But not saying
anything didnt work for me either. I have heard people say
that the reason they didnt contact someone was because they
didnt know what to say. Sometimes the only message we need
to send is I am thinking of you. A kind word can be the best medicine.
At my mothers funeral, one
of her friends came up to me and said how much she was going to
miss my mother. She also said she hadnt come to see my mom
or keep in touch in the last year because she just didnt
know what to say. I know my mom would have loved to have heard
from her friend even if it was only a card. It isnt always
about what you say. Often, your actions speak louder than words.
Just staying in contact with a note, card, e-mail or even a call
is enough to let the other person know you are thinking of them.
When it comes right down to it, connecting
is the best part of being human. There are times when there are
no words that can express how we are feeling or change the situation.
But that doesnt mean that a simple message of I am thinking
about you and I am here for you cant make a difference.
Sometimes in our darkest hour a simple message sent from someone
who cares can make all the difference.
