As a woman, mother and friend, I’ve watched people I care about go thru life’s challenges: divorce, cancer, death of a beloved pet, cross-country moves, house fires, job loss.
I struggled with what to do to ease their pain. How do they feel? What should I say? How could I deliver something to make them feel better?
Getting sick a few years ago, lead me to discover the mistake in my thinking. No one can deliver something that will make the pain disappear. No one can make the fear vanish, or bring unknowns into focus.
What we CAN do for each other is to show our love, our friendship. We can stand arm and arm with our friends to face the challenges together. We can’t make the pain or situation go away, but we can be there with compassion.
That is exactly what my friends did for me while I was being treated for stage 2 breast cancer. They sent me things that reminded me of how much I mattered to them. I gained 10 pounds eating the food they cooked for me. I wore their scarves and hats. I read their dog-eared books. I surrounded myself with their tokens as I healed.
Receiving their gifts of love actually made me feel blessed to get cancer. (I also got a new rack, but that’s another story…)
So I started this company, Uplift Gift, to help women support their friends with the most meaningful gestures of love. We provide a resource for all of us who want to show support and comfort, and even motivation and inspiration, for our friends who are facing life challenges.
I set Uplift Gift up to help uplift the giver, the gift recipient and importantly, charities around the U.S. Click here to learn more.
