I am a hospice nurse. In Oakland county when pronouncing the death of a patient I must call local law enforcement. An officer must come and provide the ME# to allow funeral home to come for the patient. Last night a young police officer arrived to clear the scene. After getting all the information from me he returned to his car to call the medical examiner. He called my cell to tell me to come out and get the number when he'd gotten it. I walked out to his squad car to find him back on the phone. I waited a moment and when he got off his phone call, he gave me the info I needed. Then he pointed to a little heart on his squad car window. "Can you get that for me?" I took it off his driver's side window and said, "I know what this is!" I explained to him about Nancy who hands these out to bless and encourage everyone. He read the heart, "You are appreciated!" and he got choked up. He said, "Please, will you tell her that this made my day," as he stuck it up on his visor. He went on to say that he and his wife had recently welcomed a new baby and he had been able to be off for a month. But when he came back to work he had to work ten days in a row. This was day 10 of 10. He said all he wanted to do was to be home with his family. "I was so discouraged this morning. But this made my day."
A fun and handy way to connect with our fellows to spread good vibes.
I would absolutely recommend Say it with Hearts! I received one and it made my day ! I passed it along to someone else to make their day. Way to go, @Nancy Jacobs Zucker

I love handing these out and I especially loved seeing one that somebody else left at my bank. A few simple words that put a smile on anyone's face.

It is amazing the profound affect this has on people! Not only is the recipient often moved to tears of appreciation, but the giver gets a huge sense of satisfaction at being a part of lifting up another person. After I gave out my most recent heart the woman’s coworker came over to see what it was all about and she just kept saying how awesome it was and wanted a few so she could also hand them out. It is infectious. I love this idea and I love Nancy!
Very thoughtful idea from a very sweet person!
