When I was young, I spent a lot of time in the hospital. I had many surgeries throughout my childhood. On a few occasions, my teachers sent me sweet little cards and some goodies from my friends in school. As a kid, being in the hospital is really scary. I never knew what to expect. When my teachers sent in things like this, it made me feel a little bit better about my being in the hospital and dealing with what I had to.
Now that I've grown, I have tried to show my love and support to those who have had to stay in the hospital (for whatever reason). I have made small quilts for kids, and donated them to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City. This hospital is one of the many that I stayed in. It holds a special place in my heart! This is also the hospital that one of my elementary school teachers brought in cards from my friends in school. It meant so much to me to see, how much others cared about me and wished me well.
Service is the best way to show support to those who are suffering. If you are looking to provide service to your students that are sick, or have had to stay in the hospital, I have made a cute little "Get Well Printable Card" set. They are free.
