Do you ever wonder where inspirational messages come from in a greeting card? Do you think you have wisdom and the cleverness to writer you own? Have you or a family member been a caregiver for a ill family member? Have you needed a caregiver? If so, you may have what it takes to win the Hallmark Caring Messages contest.
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for CaringBridge. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
You can submit your ideas and Caring Messages card between now and November 17, 2013 to the Hallmark website to win. Draw on your personal experience as a caregiver, as someone who has received care, or as a thank you for those that have cared for your loved ones.
My Grandma was so precious to me, in many ways, she was my best friend and true confidant. I’ve blogged about my relationship with her several times. In this post, I blogged about giving my aunt a break from care giving. I felt both guilty for not being close enough to help more since I lived 2-1/2 hours away and that my aunts and uncles who lived closer had the added burden on them. I hope they know how much I appreciated their loving efforts, time, and commitment to keeping my grandma at home during her final months.
I wish there was a card back then to give to my aunts and uncles to show how much I appreciated their hard work caring for my grandma. This is my chance to write the encouragement that I wish I could have given back then.
Maybe you are in the stage of life where you can draw from personal experiences too, you can create your own Caring Message card and even have the chance for it to become a Hallmark card!
