Yes, a fairly profound sentiment for a set called "Quick & Cute" ... a message of hope, sort of the silver lining concept.

Here's the index in the gallery:

Sort of wish I still had this set....

Thanks! I agree, it is profound and a beautiful thought.

I missed this thread first time round, and discovered it earlier this week. I've been enjoying reading it. Personally I would prefer punny to mushy any day - I've even printed or stamped my own punny one from time to time. But all those emotion sentiments - I couldn't use them, I'd never send them.
On the other hand, I actually do like the one from Garden Whimsy. To me it says don't live in the past, don't wait for the future, get on with life where you are. And sometimes we need that reminder. I'd send that one to my Dad if I thought he'd act on it. I worked a bit for older people when I was in the UK, and the difference between one woman in her seventies who had just stopped living when her husband had died 8 years previously, and one woman in her eighties who was full of zest for life in spite of not being able to get round other than in a wheelchair has always stayed with me. I'm not minimizing what it must mean to lose a life-partner, BTW, but life goes on.
I like basic sentiments like Congratulations, Thinking of You, Just for You - very general and non-specific.

LOL!! Maybe that could be a whole new thread...figure out what to use some of these sentiments for.

I do tend to be sarcastic so I like the punny ones. It just fits me. I only do sweet and sappy when it is appropriate. I just used cherish yesterday for a baby card. At work, I see enough children not cherished. It just seems like a good sentiment regarding kids. Though now I wonder....do I seem bossy telling them to 'cherish' their baby....like they weren't going to do it anyway....hmmm.

This has been a fun thread to read. I'm glad it was rediscovered!
