People say the darndest things. Especially when they’re worried and/or scared. Ok, some people are just jerks, but mostly they mean well and the stuff they say just comes out wrong.

Today a friend pointed me to the Emily McDowell Studio website. She’s designed a fresh, honest line of heartfelt “empathy cards.” Like Hallmark, but for grim times.

Check ’em out. They’re fun but not flippant, cute but not coy. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of room inside for you to copy the inspirational quote about never giving up that you saw on Pinterest this morning. (I’m kidding.)

Honestly, I think she’s on to something. I hope these cards will make great strides in the battle against the tragic, (and so often incurable) Foot-in-Mouth-Disease.
