Your loved one is going through a lot and often needs that extra time to rest. But cancer is often a long battle, and it’s important for them to remember that you are with them every step of the way. There is a lot you can do to make them feel connected, without having to physically be there with them.
Commit to reading the same book together or watching the same show. Text them little updates periodically. You could even do this with a group for a virtual book clubSend one positive text or note to them first thing every day (or every week). It’s easy, but will make a big difference, even if the positive thing is that you saw a cute puppy, have a funny meme to share, or just want to say hi! Make them feel included. Send them an update on what’s going on with friends, other family members, or other areas of your life. Let them feel like they are still a part of group activities, or up to date on the latest gossip. It’s an easy way to bridge the distance, and give them new news to focus on.
Enjoy spending time with your loved ones, and have a blast doing it. Showing you care takes all shapes and forms, and your loved ones will appreciate your time and effort.
Stay Beautiful Always,
Noelle & The SB Team 💕
