Product Description

Have you ever wished you could express yourself in writing in just a few powerful words? Like when you're giving flowers and want to write something clever on the enclosure card. Or when signing a group birthday card at work. Or when writing a sympathy note to a friend. There are occasions in life where we are asked to compose short messages of just one, two or three carefully-chosen sentences. This book shows you how to write messages like that.

Words to the Rescue: The sentiment guide for the tongue tied is divided into twelve chapters, so readers can quickly find the sentiments they need: Anniversary, Apology, Birthday, Congratulations, Encouragement, Friendship, Get Well, Goodbye, Romance and Fun, Sympathy, Thank You and Thinking of You. With over 1000 entries, each 30 words or less, readers are sure to find the inspiration they need to craft personal, memorable and witty notes.

Summary: If you are looking for a great little book to help you write extra-special notes to your friends, loved ones and co-workers on just about any occasion, this is a wonderful resource to have!

Full Review:
Have you ever found yourself wanting to write something meaningful to someone you care about, but had difficulty thinking of what to say? This is the book I have often wished for when trying to find the right words for special occasions and situations! Since I love being creative and I love saving money (Wow, greeting cards are expensive these days!), I often make homemade greeting cards or gift tags, but coming up with thoughtful messages to write inside is not always as easy.

This lovely little book is full of a thousand thoughtful things to say when you need ideas! Words to the Rescue includes messages for so many occasions: Birthdays, Congratulations, Anniversaries, Apology, Encouragement, Sympathy, Weddings, Thank Yous, Romance, and many many more... I like the fact that you can use the ideas word for word, tweak them to make them more personal, or just use them as inspiration to create your own. This pleasantly-designed little book would look great in a gift basket or makes a great gift with note cards or stationery and a pen or even card-making supplies for a crafty friend.

A few examples I love:

Anniversary: How much stinking happiness can one guy take?

Apology: I hope these flowers get me in the door/ 'cause what I did I won't do no more.

Birthday: To my down to earth buddy who's older than dirt.

New Home: Kick back and relax. You'll be making regular trips to the hardware store soon enough.

Format: Paperback
I'll admit that I was a bit skeptical this little book would actually be worth having on my shelf. I already have several books of quotes, a ton of poetry books, and my handy-dandy Webster's Thesaurus. Did I really need a book of sappy greeting card lines? Well, no, I didn't. And I still don't. But upon review, I discovered that my bookshelf does indeed need its own copy of Words to the Rescue. There may be a few sappy lines throughout, but this book is mostly filled with great ideas perfect for crafting your own greeting cards, sending notes with flower arrangements, signing a group card, or even leaving a message on someone's Facebook wall.

There are 12 categories in Words to the Rescue, each one filled with a minimum of 6 pages of 30-word-or-less sentiments. The categories include anniversary, apology, birthday, congratulations (with sub-chapters), encouragement, friendship, get well, goodbye & miss you, romance & fun, sympathy, thank you, and thinking of you. Wow! That covers pretty much everything.

In addition to the 12 category chapters, there's a section in the back called Fast Phrases. It covers the same 12 categories, but each one is filled with even shorter, 1-line phrases.

One thing that I really like about Words to the Rescue is that I didn't find any off-color phrases or foul language inside. Obviously, no one is going to like every phrase presented in such a guide, but I didn't discover any that were offensive or crude. The sentiments are sweet, funny, and generally appealing.

Steve Fadie really did a great job with this book. Here are just a couple more reasons I like it:

1) Many of the sentiments include underlined words. These words are easy to change to make the phrases more personalized.

Format: Paperback
There are lots of times when I'm sending a sympathy card, for example, and I just find myself at a loss of words. I wish that the right inspirational, comforting words would come to mind, but often they don't. Words to the Rescue: The sentiment guide for the tongue tied is the solution to that frustration and offers lots of heartfelt suggestions to include with that special card and/or gift!

Here's what you'll find inside:
89 notes to encourage friends and family when they're down 50 idea starters to help you write a sympathy message
110 ways to say "happy birthday" to family and friends
69 ideas for apologies... with sincerity and wit
15 sentiments to congratulate the bride and groom
30 things you can jot on a new baby card
99 ways to express your thanks and gratitude
450 "Fast Phrases" to help cure your writer's block instantly

Here are a few examples of some of the sentiments I especially enjoy:

For a new home owner-"Everyone needs a peaceful retreat from the chaos of the world. Kudos on finding yours."

For the loss of a loved one-"May you be comforted in the light of love, today and during the tough road ahead."

For the graduate-"Getting your degree took dedication, hard work and get-up-and-go. I'm exhausted just thinking about it."

To thank a friend (my favorite one!)-"You're great. Who else can I tell I got a great deal on toilet paper and have them be happy for me?

This book makes an excellent gift, especially for Valentine's Day, for a loved one or even your child's teacher! It's also popular with scrapbookers, since there are so many quotes throughout the book. My favorite section of the book is Fast Phrases, with hundreds of phrases to inspire you!
