I want to lift her up and make her laugh, I am kind of dry on ideas right now I guess due to griefing this news.
I was thinking of sending her a card every week at least. Any ideas I would so appreciate it!
Please if you can, pray for her, her name is Dorothy.
thank you all
Sue Ellen, I'm so sorry for you and your family. It is so hard to deal with an illness that is not going to get better.
It's so sweet that you want to send her cards every week. They will cheer her and also her caretakers.
I love to make cards with whimsical animals. Paper Smooches has a really cute set. Here is a link:
Penny Black makes some really cute sets with fat kitties that I just love. Here is a link:

I think just simple greetings are nice for sentiments - Hi there, thinking of you, Hello, Sending Smiles, Sending Sunshine, To Cheer You.
If you take a walk through the card section in a store, you can find other ideas for sentiments. I do this sometimes and jot them down in a little notebook I keep in my purse.
You can print them on your computer, die cut them, or even just cut a simple rectangle and mat it with a color.
It really is the thought that counts. I am sure she will really appreciate your cards.
