Greeting card sentiments should focus on the sender's honest feelings while avoiding controversy. Try to avoid references to drinking or drug use, and religious or secular holidays unless you know the recipient would approve. For holidays, these feelings might range from a neutral "We are thinking of you this holiday season!" to a more friendly "After our adventures this last year, I can't wait to see what plans we make next!"

In the case of less happy circumstances, such as illness or tragedy, try "I heard that you were ill. I hope you are feeling better when you read this." It is also appropriate to offer to help as long as you are very specific, such as "I heard your Mom was in the hospital. Would it help if I picked up Dustin at soccer this week?" Avoid "I know how you must feel" or "Let me know what I can do".
