Hallmark Moment

A friend used to be married. I just found out today that she isn't anymore. All the legal work has been finalized and signed, and she's moving on with her life.

What do you do when someone you've known each a long time has had a major life change? If she were sick I'd send a Get Well card. If someone she was close to died, I'd put a Sympathy card in the mail. There are cards for just about every occasion; today I sent a divorce card to a friend. I was amazed that there were several cards to choose from. Some of them were funny and irreverent, and some were heartfelt.

I picked out one I thought she'd like, added some words to the bottom of the card, signed my name, and sent it off. I'm sure if the shoe was on the other foot, I'd appreciate knowing that people were thinking about me.


  1. Having been divorced, I had never even thought about there being a card for it. Makes sense thought since it is, for many folks, just another life event.

  2. What a sweet and thoughtful thing to do.

  3. Every time I stop in at the Hallmark store I am amazed at the number of events they cover. They seem to think of everything.

  4. What a sweet thing! I've found that if I don't know what to is my fallback gift!
