A Get Well card can mean so much to a person in need. I remember when my father was very ill, one of the only things that truly lifted his spirits was receiving a Get Well card from his co-workers. His job was his second home, and his co-workers were like his second family. These get well wishes meant so much to him that they even made him shed some tears when he opened the card. This was during the few months he was in the hospital and stuck at home after recovering from a stroke. For months, my father was unable to spell or perform simple math problems. After receiving support from his co-workers, I could see his spirits were lifted. He was back at work a few months later and able to perform his daily functions as if nothing ever happened. I 100% believe the Get Well card and support from his co-workers helped him through the healing process.
We have all struggled with our health at one time or another and we all know how it feels to know someone cares. I have heard many medical experts say that your mental health can be just as important as your physical health when trying to heal from an illness. There has even been scientific evidence that an improved mental state can speed up the healing process! So the next time you hear your co-worker is out of work because they are struggling with an illness, maybe it’s a good idea to send them a card. It will mean the world to them!
