Receiving a card when you are temporarily sick or going through a longer-term illness can mean so much. If you know someone who isn't feeling well, consider putting a smile on their face and boosting their spirits by sending an encouraging note or card. Here are some ideas to help you come up with the right words to lift someone up during a difficult time.

This article isn't just for religious people, but it does include many get-well sentiments that include mention of God. Personally, I think God can bring tremendous comfort to those that are struggling or hurting, and I have heard many stories that are a testament to that. Even if you or the person you are writing to don't believe in God, you can still use the ideas here for inspiration or revise them so they don't include religious content. Taking a moment to wish someone well during their time of need is a loving and meaningful gesture whether the content of your message is religious or secular.
