The Bug's Get Well Card


Happy President's Day. Hope you're having a fantastic weekend. I had to share this card and story with you. I had to verify it to make sure it was true because it was a little bit unbelievable.

The second day I was in the hospital, The Man took The Little Bug to the store to buy some flowers and a card to bring to me when they visited the hospital. He said, "We should get a card..." as they entered the card section. She, who cannot read, immediately walked over and picked up the above card and told her dad, "We should get this one." Her Dad is still stunned, weeks later. I had to ask him to tell me the details again because I thought I must've heard them wrong.

There was no way for her to know this was a get well card and the sentiments were so charming I fell in love immediately with this sweet card. Her art on the inside just took it to a whole 'nother level of complete love.


Thanks American Greetings for making such a charming card. And thanks Little Bug for the magic that is you. And for the record, I am trying to live by the wisdom of this card.
