Sharing is caring

two rosesHow about saying the following when talking to a chronically ill person or a family in trouble?

I prepared too much dinner today. Can I bring some over for you?

Tell me what it’s really like to be you for 24 hours.

I bought flowers to cheer you up. Is it okay to put them in a vase?

I have no idea how you are feeling, but I will always listen to you.

Has your cleaner returned? If not, is it okay to bring mine over just this once?

It’s hard for me to sit still for long periods, so if there is any laundry for me to fold or throw into the washer, just say the word.

I cook on Fridays and this week I plan to make lasagna. I would like to make extra for you. But, if you prefer chicken I can do that. It’s no problem.

I’m going to the supermarket. Need anything?

If you need a good cry, I have plenty of tissues in my bag.

I want you to know how much I admire the way you are handling all this. I can imagine how difficult it must be.
