Broken Objects Foil Empathy Card
When you need to let someone know that the things we survive are what make us magnificent, consider this Japanese custom, called kintsugi. Then maybe take them to sushi, another Japanese custom that always makes me feel better but doesn't really make for a poetic greeting card.

Broken and beautiful
People cry when they read this card
Feeling broken, less
I have sent this card to a friend who had a corneal replacement, another who had part of a foot muscle removed. It addresses the feeling of being less after such an experience, losing a piece of oneself. I know the feeling from having had a radical mastectomy.
Gratitude and appreciation
I just read a spiritual book and this form of art- Kintsugi was discussed. The same day I was telling my sister-in-law about the book - she pulled out of her purse this card she had bought for me:unknown to her it’s exactly what I was sharing with her. I don’t believe in coincidences - it was divinely orchestrated. I ordered these cards to accompany the books I bought to share with others as a gift. I love these cards and I’m grateful.
Do I have to pick just one?
This is one of my favorite cards in the line...and there are (sadly) so many reasons to send it. Last order, I got the boxed set of cards as well...just so I'm prepared. I like to mark my calendar for a couple weeks after I send out a sympathy card and THEN send one of these...they always seem to hit around that time when people are feeling like the "new norm" is overwhelming.
Beats any “get well” card I’ve ever seen. Can address any loss of health, person in your life — I t’s so much more empathic than most cards and positive without being smarmy.
