When one of the ladies in my bible study group got the devastating news that she had breast cancer, we all banded together and set a meal schedule for her and her family. I didn’t know her well but as I thought about what I was going to cook, I figured it would be kind to bring some light into such a dark time in her life.
To fill the box, I bought every yellow item I found. From a silly emoji toy, hand cream, Carmex and a plastic lei to delicious Toblerone chocolates, banana chips, lemonade, yellow m&ms and even yellow nail polish.
I wrapped the lot in yellow tissue paper and placed them in a yellow wrapped “sunshine” box.
Then I designed the cheeriest sun I could muster and used it to create sunshine printables to bring a smile to her face.
Now in remission, she has thanked me repetitively over several months. I had no idea the impact that simple gesture would have on her.
If you know someone who’s hurting, a sunshine box is a very easy, inexpensive, and thoughtful way to brighten their day!
It’s a great gift to convey sympathy for a friend who’s feeling blue, hurting, has cancer or grieving a loss.
Pin it and brighten someone’s day!
