My Children Lift A Heavy Heart February 2, 2012 – Posted by smilingdaisy
My son, daughter, and I have been trying to write to people in our family and friends who are going through difficult times. So, recently we decided to make personal note cards for this purpose. My children sat down immediately and wrote to my brother with cancer, my sister with a sick husband, and an elderly friend living in a nursing center. I was so proud of them for being so thoughtful!

Then, my son went out of the room and I heard a lot of whispering between my daughter and him. Well, my sister was over and had mentioned that a very close friend of hers (an elderly lady battling breast cancer) was having a birthday. Knowing that she loves angels, he and my daughter found a beautiful picture of an angel online, they printed it out, and he made her a gorgeous birthday card to cheer her day.

The next day she called him and told him that her day had started out very tough. Then, when she received his card, it completely changed her entire day! She couldn’t thank him enough.

I was so proud of him and of my daughter. It just proves that when we take an extra few minutes out of our day to let someone know we are thinking of him/her, it can make all the difference in the world! It changed that sweet, and very sick lady’s entire perspective on her birthday!
