If there are cards we can never plan for, never be prepared for, it’s the time when someone needs a hug, needs us to to let them know we think of them during a difficult time.
I myself am only slowly starting to deal with the sudden and heartbreaking loss of my beautiful little Sissy, who has been by my side for over 13 years. I had to let her go, just 3 days into the new year, and I’ve been numb from pain and consumed by it at the same time – everyone of you who also has a pet knows how much it hurts, and I was so very thankful for the outpouring of support and love from my friends and colleagues. And when I received a “Big Hugs” card from my friend Tara, it was so good, to know that someone cared enough to send me something.
So, even though the topic is very hard to face, I think we should consider having a stack of “Hugs” cards – simply cards that let someone know you care about them when they are going through a rough time.
