And now for a commercial break? Cool cards.

Okay its a little commercial, but I wanted to let you know about these.

Hallmark Gold Crown stores are now selling Journeys encouragement cards – Encouraging Words Along Life’s Way.

The series includes a coming out card!!!

Cover:

One of the most difficult things we can do is to show our true selves to the world. Yet, you found the courage to say, “This is who I am.”

Inside:

There’s no telling what changes will follow. But living with the strength that comes from being everything you are brings its own rewards — and you deserve them all.

Journeys cards cover needs not typically addressed in traditional card lines including all of these and more:

  • Cancer diagnosis, treatment, hair loss, recovery anniversary
  • Loss of young life
  • Infertility, miscarriage, post-partum depression
  • Waiting for test results
  • Caring for an aging parent
  • Thanking a hospice worker or organ donor’s family
  • Difficult birthday
  • Addiction recovery
  • Eating disorders and diet support
  • Depression
  • Job loss
  • Coming out
  • Leaving a bad situation
  • Quitting a bad habit
  • Empty nest

and be sure to thank them for that coming out card. I did and the store manager and clerk appreacted my raving about how good it was for their company to carry it.
