It Takes A Long Time to Grow An Old Friend Card


This started out as a get well card for one of my best friends, who had a freak accident a few weeks ago. She took her dog to the vet for shots. She was holding the dog and told the vet tech that she would bite her. The vet tech asked her to hold the dog and then reached for the dog from behind. The dog turned around and bit my friend on the hand (trying to get to the vet tech of course). My friend called me on her way home, and we actually laughed about her dog biting her. Four hours later, she called to say that she was in the ER -- that her hand was hurting so bad that she decided to get it checked out. She ended up in the hospital for 4 days and had two surgeries on her hand. Thank goodness she is going to be okay! She is one of the best friends that anyone could ever have, and I've had her for 21 years! When I saw this sentiment, the card evolved into a "I'm so thankful for you" card.

I recently changed jobs and as a result have been separated from a great friend. This sentiment would be perfect to let her know I still think of her. TFS
