Commercial retailers, such as Hallmark, offer greetings that express get well wishes online and give customers the option to purchase get well cards to send to friends and family members. Online greeting card companies, such as 123Greetings and Greeting Card Universe, also offer ideas for get well wishes.
Common phrases used to express expressions of support include "I'm cheering for you" or "I believe in you." Creative get well wishes that make the recipient smile may include funny phrases with colorful illustrations of cats, bears or dogs such as "Get back on your paws soon" or "Hugs and kisses to feel better soon."
Get well wishes can also focus on encouragement. For example, send a card or message to a loved one that reads "Rest, relax and recover. Take it one day at a time." Additional encouraging phrases may include "Nothing is impossible with a willing heart" or Think positive and have faith."
An inspirational get well wish may provide some comfort for those suffering from illness. A message such as "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us" may provide the recipient with the strength to see the positive in what could be a devastating situation.
