Default I need of ideas please

I need to make a card for my daughters MIL who has cancer and may or may not make it home from the hospital. I don't think a Get Well Soon card will work but Thinking Of You doesn't quite do it for me either. Maybe someone here has been in this situation and could lend some help. I'd sure appreciate it.

"Thinking of you" seems appropriate or "because I care." Maybe you don't need a sentiment at all, just a beautiful card and a heartfelt personal message.

It's a difficult situation. Just knowing someone cares is enough.

What about Peace Love and Joy that is in All Year Cheer 1 ? Or find a verse that you like and use your printer.

I have a stamp that says "Sending you Happy Thoughts". It would seem an appropriate saying for this situation.

Hope that helps!

What about just a beautiful floral upbeat kind of card with no sentiment at all. Maybe some pretty ribbon, embellishments, etc. And then just write inside of it for instance...We love you or Our thoughts are with you!

I agree with this wholeheartedly especially since you don't know whether she'll even be able to go home. Just the receipt of the card will show her how much she is thought of and each cancer patient deals with their situation in their own way.

I just made a card for my Aunt who is going through Chemo right now due to Breast Cancer. I used the SU Hope Is set because I just love the saying about "Hope Is ...... a brighter tomorrow". I think that we can always have hope. There have been many, mighty miracles brought about by Faith and Hope. I also used Pixie Pink & Black. A very pretty card but I didn't take a pic of it before I sent it.

Good luck!
Robyn

How about Words of Wisdom (page 179)? Maybe just a floral, decorative cardfront with one of these sentiment on the inside? There's a few good ones there. And sometimes, especially when I need to make cards in Spanish, I simply make a nice cardfront, hijack a sentiment from Hallmark.com and print it up on my computer! HTH and prayers for your daughter's MIL.

How about "You are in my thoughts and prayers" or Possibly a Bible verse?

What about "may hope fill your heart" from the retired Fun Phrases set or "I think of you" from the Simple Sayings set?

I have one from Endless Creations that says "Kind words to comfort you, peace to quiet you, care to encourage you, one day at a time" or they have another that says "caring about how you are doing and thinking about you often".

I made cards for an aunt with terminal cancer, and had the same dilemma. I alternated between sending her humorous cards (everyone needs a laugh) and "warm wishes/hugs" types of cards.

I don't think the message is as important as the thought. I'm sure she will appreciate any card you send her.
