“We’ve been thinking of you” really doesn’t cut it. But what does?
I had four kids under five at one stage. Although looking back it’s a bit of a blur, I’ll never forget my sister in law bringing round food for my freezer and homemade pureed food for my twin babies. As much as the food itself (which was fantastic), it was the sense that someone really cared and actually did something. But you don’t have to cook yourself. Consider these ideas;
Sometimes, it’s really the thought that counts. So, why not pull a few friends together to create a real difference. Even more, remind people to stay in touch beyond the first week. The result will be that your friend will be supported over the long time it takes to heal.
One person who’s thoughtful enough to organise everyone else’s good intentions can make something great happen. So, at Christmas, it’s the perfect time to show you care. It only takes a group of people chipping in a small amount each to give one thing that really makes a difference. Again, perhaps ask for a hint first.
Make it easy on yourself and everyone else. Grouptogether lets you set up a page to let everyone chip in and leave a thoughtful message.
