May The Sun Shine On You Today

Every once in a while, I see a greeting card that sums up a sentiment perfectly. Here’s one that I’ve had hanging on my bulletin board for several years. I smile every time I look at it.

  • What makes it so “perfect”?
  • First, it is short and sweet.
  • Second, it is easy to understand.
  • Third, it is hopeful.

Postpartum Support Virginia provides hope and help to new and pregnant mothers with three short sentences:

You are not alone.   You are not to blame. With help you will be well.

These statements normalize and validate a woman’s experience, letting her know that other women have gone through similar things. It tells her that the way she is feeling is not her fault. And – perhaps most importantly – it gives her hope that she can recover.

  • Short and sweet.
  • Easy to understand.
  • Offer hope.
