Thoughts for Jen


My coworker Jen recently got some disconcerting health news about her brother. Tests are being run and naturally minds are running wild. I really admire her positive attitude despite the circumstances and have been keeping her in my thoughts. Sometimes, its nice to hear from someone else that it’s just not fair.

Dear Jen,

I am so sorry to hear of your brother’s recent health news. I can only imagine the roller coaster of emotions you and your family must be experiencing. Please know you are all in my thoughts. And if there is anything I can do to help, I hope you will ask. This kind of thing is never fair, and all I can say is I am so sorry.

I know your brother is so lucky to have you in his life, supporting and cheering him during this difficult time. And I know it can be exhausting buoying the spirits of others when you’re experiencing the same fears. As such, I’m enclosing a little Be Optimistic post card for you to use at your discretion. Hopefully it will give you a much deserved day off, at the very least.

I’ll be thinking of you,


P.S. Make yourself a drink!
