When I was home for the holidays, I visited my 83-year-old aunt a few times who was in the hospital. She had fallen in her apartment and cracked her pelvis and wrist. (She's doing good now and is out of the hospital.)
During one of my visits, children from a nearby school came to the hospital and sang Christmas carols. Although they sang at the other end of the corridor, their voices carried and they sounded like little angels. My sister and I, along with my aunt, and my cousin, were sitting in a small lounge area, when the little children came in bearing home-made get well cards. They started handing them out to ALL of us, when someone said, "WE'RE not sick, SHE is!" and pointed to my aunt. She received about 10 cards, each one cuter than the next.
I had to take pictures of them and share them with you.
They were THAT darn cute!
I was so impressed with their artistic ability. I'm guessing these kids were in third or fourth grade.
I love the "layered" look, the blue snowflakes, the use of pinking shears to cut out the tree!
Truthfully, this is equal to MY artistic ability. Fact. But I still think it is cute.
Look at the detail in the exclamation point. Is that a "bow" on the dot?
Inside the card this child shows off more artistic talent. Look at the detail in the ornament hook!
On the green card - that kid prints fancier than me! I LOVE the moon on the card to the right!
Love the message, "Dear Person"!
This is one of my favorites. Doesn't this look like an old-fashioned Santa Claus? (maybe doing a disco dance?)
Does this just break your heart or what?
This card made me laugh! "I hope you get out soon!" As if the person were in prison! Ha ha!
I saved the BEST for last. This little girl put a lot of detail in the picture. The little girl has a "bubble" by her mouth that reads "good luck". She REALLY pours her heart out in the card!
It's hard to read the card. She wrote, "Dear Friend, I really hope you feel better. I know you're strong and tough and you will recover. Don't lose hope!" Then she wrote with a red crayon on the red paper and it gets REALLY difficult to read. We had a hard time reading it IN PERSON. It said something about "Even though I don't know you, I will still pray for you. God works miracles. Happy Holidays. Sincerely Mailah" This is pretty deep for an 8-10 year old, don't you think?
I hope you enjoyed these as much as I did!
