A sweet card to send when you want to say “I’m sorry”…. or as a sympathy card to comfort someone who is hurting or going through grief and loss.

I drew this little girl in Procreate on the iPad over a span over couple of days, during a time that was marked by sadness for me. I hope that this image, rather than upsetting anyone, or making them sadder, will actually serve to comfort during the sad times. We all get sad and it’s ok. It’s ok for tears to flow, it’s good to acknowledge when we are feeling down. If the sadness doesn’t pass and you are sadder, depressed, feeling down or blue or feeling overwhelmed for longer than say, about 2 weeks, it’s probably a good idea to let your doctor know. They can really help, or that has been my own experience. Thank you for visiting!

    The eyes say it all; but there is comfort in the body wearing the colourful pj’s holding the teddy. Sometimes it is that dark time alone at night which would be the best time to spend alone to cry. Lovely piece Karin.

  • I’m so glad there is some comfort to be found here, thanks so much Mui-Ling :)
