Wouldn’t it be great if our kids never got sick? They would never sneeze or throw up. (and you would not have to clean up after them:-) They could get the perfect attendance award every year! Unfortunately, kids of all ages get sick. We want to make them as comfortable as possible for the duration of the illness. Because of this, we have our cabinets stocked with cough drops, fever-reducers, and chicken soup to comfort their bodies. When the illness does not go away quickly, they need comfort for their hearts too. A simple note or card will do. I was fortunate to have a grandma that sent lots of cards when I was growing up. Not everyone has a grandma like that. Knowing that someone somewhere cares about you is a comfort and an encouragement. I’ve started a Cards 4 Kids drive because kids do get sick.
