Everyone tends to get worried when someone they know and care about is not too well. However, that does not mean you let the sentiment be evident to the patient. It is up to you to make everything a little more cheerful. A get well message can be the ray of sunshine that an ailing person is looking for. A get well note can do wonders for the morale of the person, and can encourage the ill or injured person and his family to get through the ordeal.
Things You Need to Remember
~ Picking the right words for the get well soon card obviously depends on your relationship with the person who is unwell. You will find that it is easier to choose messages for a close friend or relative.
~ The tone of the message can be encouraging or humorous. Funny messages should be used only if you are sure that the humor will be appreciated.
~ Always use the person’s first name as it makes the message a lot more personal. Even if you are using a quote, always add a personal message. This makes it easier to relate to.
~ If the card is for someone who has had a serious injury or is suffering from a terminal illness then a warm, honest card that expresses your sentiment is the best option. Always strike a positive note and never mention the illness.

I heard you’re feeling blue today,
And wanted you to know,
Friends are all around you
Till the dark skies are to go.
When you’re down and want to smile,
But haven’t found the strength
Just open up this little card
And feel the love I’ve sent.
Sending a little sunshine,
To sprinkle in your day.
Reminding you that you’re thought of
In a warm and special way!
Here’s a little bloom
to brighten your room,
And a little card to say
God Bless you today!
