Cards are not enough. Even if you read every card and it says the perfect words – the words were written by Hallmark not by you. Treat your loved one to a special treat with your words. Open a card and write down one entire side. Tell her what a great mom she is and what she means to you. Or how great a role model he is as a dad. I think we all take for granted how our words can make someone feel special, feel needed, feel valued and our words (not Hallmark’s) are the ones our loved ones want to hear. Simple but true.
