Hug in a Card

A 5 year old girl made hundreds of New Years’ cards for seniors. She wanted to make them happy, to brighten their lives during Covid. Covid has reduced our contacts with the people we love. W all need connections, even if only through cards and facetime.

This story moved me and inspired this short 50 word story – for the #50PreciousWords contest held by Vivian Kirkfield. Check here for other precious stories.


Here is my entry:


Hug in a Card

A card for Mr. Grant.

A picture for Mrs. Martin.

So many still to do.

Her new friends couldn’t be disappointed.

Another card.

Another picture.

She could do this.

She would do this.

Her friends would smile.

They’d laugh.

They would all know she cared – a hug in a card.
