The Strangest Card Request...

A lovely friend of mine is going into hospital next week for an operation, and she has a rather severe phobia of hospitals and feeling out of control. She's being as positive as she can, while feeling absolutely terrified, and she is facing it head on and finding little ways to feel like she's in control of the situation, planning to take music, herbal remedies, crystals, all the things she loves with her. We were chatting about her plans, and I said something about her attitude being really good, that she was finding ways to work around the phobia, and telling it that she certainly wasn't going to be defeated by it. Anyway, she liked what I'd said so much, she asked me to make it into an affirmation card to take to the hospital with her! Apologies in advance for the 'effing and jeffing'...

I love Lavinia stamps, and I thought something pretty and magical would offset the rather aggressive words quite well!



I hope she will like it, and that it will make her smile a little bit while she's going through something so traumatic.

I survived and came out a stronger person, I had this card on my bedside table and every nurse who came into my room loved it! My room became known as "The Spa" because of the crystals and lovely smells! This card was definitely part of my coping strategy and I credit it with some of thr success. Love it - and love you, Jen!
