Default What sort of sentiment do you use when?

I'm wondering what sort of sentiment you use for people who are going through medical tests. Especially when the results may be quite serious. I have several people in my life who are having various tests done from simple bloodwork to possible surgery. They aren't exactly *sick* and Get Well doesn't seem to fit. But they also don't have cancer or anything like that. So far all the cards I have made have just said Thinking of You.

But does anyone have other suggestions? I only have the one Thinking of You stamp from the Elegant Inspirations set and it's being used alot lately!

How about a "peace" stamp. Then you could just add a note like "may you be filled with peace during this difficult time".

Also, "hope" would be good with a note that says "I am hoping that everything turns out well".

"friendship" - with a note that reads "please know that you can count on me during this time."

Just some ideas. I know these wonderful stampers will come up with plenty more.

I have one that says" You're in my thoughts." Its along the same line of thinking of you but just another way to say it.

I have a great sentiment from Biblical Impressions that reads "You Couldn't Be in Better Hands" and I like to pair it with a CTMH image of praying hands...thinking of you is nice too.

There are alot of other "fitting" sentiments here too, not all are religious (unless that's what you're looking for) HTH!

I like to use the "gentle thoughts of you" from the (retired) Garden collage set.

I have a Penny Black one that says Feel Better Soon. I like it better than Get Well, or Get Better Soon, because there are things you can't just "get better" from KWIM?

Great minds think alike, Tamara! I was just getting ready to post that same thing - I saw your post when I scrolled down to reply.

Or even Best Wishes would be appropriate.

Even just a note card with no sentiment stamped on the front, and you can just handwrite a note inside. If you have one, a sentiment like "Encouragement" would be good, too. Or a heart image on the front, with "Loving thoughts" written inside. Really, just like with a sympathy card, it's the fact that you are thinking of them that's important.

I love these ideas! I fall into the category of using Thinking of you all the time, too!

Great ideas. Thanks for asking this question! I can always use new ways to say similar messages.

I am a confirmed user of "Thinking of You" for lots of occasions. I also have a stamp for the inside that says "You're in my thoughts and prayers" and a stamp that says "Praying For You" -- those are my most common ones. I have two friends undergoing chemo right now and sometimes I just send a pretty card with a personal note inside or stamp "thinking of you" on the front.

Thanks for the biblicalstamps.com link. I thought this company went out of business a few years ago; I see that it has a parent company and the web address has changed. A wonderful resource for scripture stamps!

I saw two stamps in my Mike's $1 spot tonight and thought of your question...one was 'Hang in There' and the other one was 'Take it Easy'. Both were in the wood mount ones but there is a 'Hang in There' in the current clear stamps too (the set has a cute little hanger in it).

I think you can also go with 'Hi' or 'Hello' type sentiments. How about 'Hugs' or 'Take Care'? Depending on how close you are to them, Cricut has a cartridge that has a 'Hug, Hug, Kiss, Kiss' sentiment in it that I've used in this circumstance.

I just sent cards to each of a couple where the husband was going through chemo. I sent something every week he was in treatment (12 weeks total). It got challenging to find fresh sentiment ideas and harder still to find something fresh to write in it but man was it appreciated by both of them. I didn't always send a handmade card but most of them were.

Hope you get lots of good news from lots of people in the coming weeks!

Peg
