Encouraging Others With Our Words
Words can be very powerful, and one of the times they can really make a strong impression is when we are encouraging others. Whether someone is having a bad day or they are going through the biggest crisis of their life, your words can mean a lot. Most people enjoy cards, or at the very least, they are not put off by receiving one.
Not only do they receive the card initially, but they can save it and enjoy it again and again. It is a generous and thoughtful reminder that someone cares about you, a friend, or a loved one. I have experienced the long-term effect of giving a card and the kindness it extends. After my father passed away, I had the pleasure of looking back through his cards and letters. It was very touching to see what he saved and how people cared.
Below, I share some ideas that I hope will provide you with inspiration to encourage people through the words you write in a card or note. I hope they help you to generate your own personalized thoughts. Either way, you can be sure that people will appreciate your thoughtfulness. I know that thoughtfulness is something that is more and more in rare supply.
