I'm thinking of writing sympathy & get well cards

I'm thinking about getting into the sympathy card business. By that I mean writing all the beautiful thoughts and feelings that go inside sympathy cards.
I've been told that I have a nak for saying things other people would never dream of saying to anyone, let alone someone who needs a sympathy card.
That was all the encouragement I needed to hear. I began writing.

One of my good friends was having a horrible time with her uterus. I won't go into it but, it sure made me glad I didn't have one. When her doctor told her it had to come out, she was excited. She'd already had her kids and she was sick of having periods. She couldn't wait to get rid of it.

When she woke up in her hospital room after the surgery, this card was waiting for her.

Dear Uterless, (That's not her real name)
My condolences to you on your loss.
I was so sorry to hear that your uterus didn't make it.
I know that it's little comfort now, but we need to remember
that your uterus had a rich and wonderful life.
We are but Mortals. We will all, someday,
make that lonely trip to pathology.
Take comfort in that I'm sure your uterus is in a far better place now.
A beautiful place, where your uterus can sing and jump and
play with all the other little uterus's.
If you ever feel a void within, try and think of the good times you
and your uterus shared together.
Things will get better.

She laughed so hard she popped a couple sutures or something and they had to take her back down to the operating room.

Now I have to write a sympathy card for a sympathy card.

  2. "lonely trip to pathology" - love it! I actually had a ovarian sono before attending Erma Bombeck conference and had 2 large cysts, when I got back for my "journey to pathology" they only discovered one. I laughed so hard there, I popped a cyst!! Gross to the layperson, but I thought it was hilarious and you would find it funny.
