… when I visit a friend who has had a stroke and who is still in hospital?
After a little research this is what I came up with - a variety of items in small pouches with explanatory tags.
Confetti - to add sparkle to your life and remind you to have fun
Paper Clip- to help keep things together when they seem out of control
Plaster - to help you through the rough times
Ribbon- to remind you to tie things together when everything falls apart
Stars - to remind you to shine and to do your best
Cotton Ball - For the rough road seek the cushioned support of family and friends.
Free Hug Vouchers
Rubber Band - A reminder to stretch your body and soul
Tissue- a reminder that suffering is part of life and so is reaching out to others
Choc Bar - to help you take a break
Small Smooth Stone- to remind you that the rough times help to refine and polish
A Sweet Treat - to remind you that someone cares for you (No picture for this as I haven't bought the sweets yet).
At the bottom of the box I've put some Free Hug Vouchers which she can redeem when my other friend and I visit her. I hope we'll have some fun taking each bag out of the box and maybe we'll have some sweetie eating and a bit of hugging thrown in.
Please take one of these virtual vouchers and accept a virtual hug from me. If you'd like to pinch the pic to put on one of your own posts you can send some more virtual hugs around to all your blog buddies.
Take care all.
