    1. So glad you enjoyed the post, Kathrine!

  2. I love this so much, I think sometimes we feel the need to help our friends out by providing solutions but being a listening ear is what we need sometimes. Thank you for the reminder! I’m totally bookmarking this! 😊

    1. That’s very true! We want to help, but sometimes all they need is someone to be there and listen to them. So happy you found this helpful, Yadi, and are bookmarking it:)

  3. These are all wonderful ways to help cheer someone up! It has been such a tough time, especially with 2020 being as difficult as it was, and honestly we are still sort of in the trenches early this year. I’m praying it gets much better for all those hurting. Letting others know they are loved is so important, and just being a great listener is so helpful to many who just want to release what they’re going through.

    1. It has been a very difficult time, and because we are still in the trenches, so many people are fed up and feeling down. So glad you liked these ideas. I’m praying things get better soon too. Have a great weekend, Ashley!

  4. This is such a GREAT topic Martha and I really value these tips. My brother has been feeling a bit down lately and I was really worrie and trying to figure out ways to cheer him up. He’s living far from me so I love the idea of sending a handwritten note. I feel nowadays we get so lost in the digital world that we tend to forget the value of a personalized note written by hand.
    have a wonderful day! 🙂
    Hugs, Ana
