I just love this piece of art and how the artist depicts a friendship between a woman and her dog. It is so beautiful.

Sending Your Friend a Card

We all get so busy in life, so imagine if you got a piece of mail from a friend, for no special reason other than they wanted you to know you were cared about? It would mean so much! Even if you want to send your greeting or message in an electronic format, that would mean a lot as well.

Life can be discouraging sometimes, and each person has their own share of trials. Sending a friend a card will surely lighten their load. It is almost too easy of a way to invest in one of life's greatest treasures!

Below, I dedicate each line to something you can put into a card for a friend. Even if you don't use one of these ideas, perhaps they can inspire your own idea for the words to put into a card for a friend. Perhaps it is a brand new friend you have just made. Again, nothing can be as nice as putting some positive thoughts out there into the world. Just imagine if that could become a bit contagious! It has the potential to do so much good.

For crafters out there that love to rubber stamp or water color cards, this article is for you. Let someone know you really care about them today.

What to Say in a Card to a Friend

  • Being friends with you is one of the happiest things in my life!
  • Thank you so much for your friendship!
  • Wishing you the best always, my friend.
  • Friend, thank you for bringing so much joy to others.
  • Your friendship encourages me!
  • I don't deserve a friend like you, but I am so thankful all the same!

Do you any messages that might be appropriate for someone you don’t like very but want to make it look like you do?

Hello Peggy, thank you for your words. I think it would be wonderful if more people actually wrote on paper cards and sent them in the mail. As for myself, I am trying to do that more and more, and really the effort is not all that great, and yet can bring such joy. I appreciate your comment.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 10, 2018:

Those are lovely suggestions and any friend would truly appreciate receiving a card like that with those types of sentiments. This may encourage more people to actually write and send cards in the mail.

Hello Mary, you touch on a great point about online greetings that people send. Those are nice to get as well, and people hardly send even those anymore. I like to get them myself and send some myself, but I really like the the paper cards the most.

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on February 11, 2018:

Thank you, Devika. You are so right about modern technology and writing cards or notes. I have been trying to write more and send more items in the mail. I received some feedback just today about a card I sentn and how encouraging it was to someone! That really made my day.

Paula (author) from The Midwest, USA on February 11, 2018:

Thank you, Kari. I am so glad you think so! I agree, about the snail mail. It is a wonderful thing!

Kari Poulsen from Ohio on February 11, 2018:

These are all lovely suggestions. I think sending a card through snail mail is a wonderful thought. :)

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on February 06, 2018:

I haven't sent a friendship card out in a while, you make want to do that. Friendship cards need careful thought when writing one and you explained clearly. I understand that modern technology has stopped us from sending cards out to our friends or loved ones.

It is nice to receive cards once in a while not just greetings online. These are great suggestions of what to say.
