    Magic Wand

    I wish I had a magic wand
    To make it go away;
    I'd wave my scepter over you
    Until you were okay.

    I'd think good thoughts; I'd send you love;
    I'd transmit healing vibes;
    My wand and I would surely beat
    Whatever the doc prescribes.

    But there is no magic scepter, so
    I cannot cast a spell;
    Just know you're often in my thoughts,
    And I hope you'll soon be well!

    By Joanna Fuchs

    Hang In There

    Hello, my friend; You're on my mind,
    Because you're somehow ailing,
    But your response to any challenge
    Has always been unfailing.

    So I'm confident you'll win again;
    Hang in there, and you'll see;
    You'll be back on top in no time,
    Tackling life courageously.

    When You're Not Here

    When you are ill,
    our sun goes under a cloud.
    Your presence in our lives
    is such a bright joy
    that everything seems in shadow
    when you're not here.
    When you aren't feeling well,
    we feel the lack
    of your glowing energy
    and contagious vitality.
    When you are sick
    we feel incomplete,
    like a jigsaw puzzle
    with a missing piece;
    Please rest,
    take good care of yourself,
    and feel better.
    We miss you
    and want you back.

    Get well soon.

    filled with a kaleidoscope of blessings.

    and although we know this is temporary,
    we selfishly want you back, right now.
    We need your bright spirit, your love of life

    My Ailing Friend

    And missing you a lot!

    Rest in your bed, although you're bored;
    Be sure to sleep more than eight;
    Get healed, get cured; come back to the world,
    Where all your fans await!

    By Joanna Fuchs

    I think of you each day,

    You're going through a lot right now;
    You're treatments can be trying;
    Remember while you do them
    It's your problem you're defying.

    Hold on to your positive attitude,
    And when things get hard to bear,
    Know that I am here for you;
    Remember that I care.

    And when you're well and flourishing,
    Look back and realize,
    You learned what you were made of;

    I believe in you; You can do it!

    Or I will be a grump!

    What to Say to a Sick Person in Arabic?

    how to wish a sick person well

    Have you ever been in a situation where you want to offer well wishes to somebody who is sick or in need?

    Do you struggle with the right words to say to this person in English?

    Do you want to be sure that you offer up the right words that can show compassion?

    We’re going to give you some great examples of what to say to somebody who is sick, and how these words can help.

    Here’s a letter that asks about this very thing to show an example of how it can work.

    Hello, Lindsay.

    I am sooooo glad that you answered my question about “all over the world.” My student was very happy, too.

    I often listen to your podcast when I drive. The day I listened to your podcast, I was a little blue…. but your podcast lifted me up a lot.

    Today I have another question.

    My colleague from Australia has to go back to his country to go to the hospital and get some medication. He called me to tell that he cannot help me with my English lessons for awhile and said sorry.

    I said, “Oh, it’s okay. Your health is most important. Please take care of yourself. Hope to have lessons with you again.”

    And I said “take care” a couple of times later again. I think what I said was okay, but I wanted more variety with how to say that. As he had to fly back to Australia, I said “Have a safe trip, “ but he corrected me and said that I should have said “ Have a safe flight. “ It was real-life learning, too. Anyway, please teach my some more phrases to say to someone who is sick.

    Looking At Slight Differences

    This is a great question–there are a lot of smaller questions on here, so we will focus on a couple.

    Let’s break it down so that we answer everything in a way that’s easy to comprehend.

    Let’s start with the difference between “have a safe trip” and “have a safe flight.”

    Trip may imply that it’s more of a vacation and have that leisurely type of feel to it.

    When you compare that to a flight, that is focused on the mode of transportation.

    It’s not that trip is wrong, and actually many people might say that and it’s perfectly acceptable.

    Other Ways To Say The Same Thing

    Sometimes it’s a matter of having multiple ways of saying the same thing.

    This may not always seem easy and you may feel unsure of what the right words are to say.

    Having multiple options can help you in a pinch and therefore ensure that you show compassion when you need it.

    It was really great in the letter how the person who wrote said “Oh, it’s OK. Your health is most important. Please take care of yourself. Hope to have lessons with you again.”

    When it comes to something like “take care”, you may search for other options of how to say this.

    You may wish to say “take care” for a variety of reasons, but for our purposes we’ll use it for a time when somebody isn’t feeling well.

    If somebody isn’t feeling well and you want to go beyond just “take care”, then here are some options that work just as well.

    • Get well soon!– Good for showing care and pretty general, but works in most situations
    • Don’t worry about anything here. Just focus on your health and getting better.- This is good for if you had to cancel a plan specifically for work or a commitment you had. It puts the other persons mind at ease that you can handle everything.
    • Feel better! – It’s a casual phrase that works well in showing that you’re thinking about that person.
    • I hope everything is okay. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. -This one is more of a caring thing to say to someone who is close to you, but could be someone you work with. For example, someone at work may need help communicating to others and you could be the point person, or maybe there’s a lesson plan a teacher needs to do or an email they need to write. For someone close to you, maybe they need you to pick up food for them or get them medicine.

    These are all great options if you need the right thing to say to somebody.

    You Want To Take The Stress Out of Things

    The main idea is to make the person in need realize that they don’t need to worry about their day to day life.

    It can be nerve wracking when you get sick and have work obligations or other personal things to tend to.

    Assuring the person that they don’t need to think of any of these things can be relieving to hear and can build connection.

    Also, well wishes always help!

    Some of these phrases are more for general health, but some are good for these particular situations.

    Try them out and see which ones work in your specific situation.


    When someone is sick, there is still an opportunity to make or break the connection.

    Focus on making them feel good about themselves and allowing them the opportunity to relax and not think about day to day life.

    The words that you chose can really help the situation or possibly even make it worse.

    So think it through, use some of these examples, and find ways to help show compassion to somebody in this situation.

    If you have any questions, please leave them below in the comments section.

    We’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

    how to wish a sick person well

    Religious Get Well Messages

    Sometimes it is appropriate to give someone a get well message with more meaning and inspiration. In that case you may want to include a religious theme.
    Messages of faith and hope can encourage those in need of faith and hope. These examples go beyond the typical secular get well wishes.
    • I don't know how to make you feel better, but I know someone who does. I'll be asking Him to take care of you.
    • No matter our physical condition, we are always important to those who love us including our creator.
    • Illnesses are just a reminder that we need miracles. I'm praying for you to experience a miracle.
    • I know God has his own timing for answering prayers, but I hope I hear that you're better soon.
    • We'll be praying for your health to be fully restored soon.
    • Know that God promises to give strength when you need it, and know that we are praying for you to have strength and peace as you face health challenges.
    • If you ever want someone to talk to or pray with, give me a call.
    • We don't always get to know the reasons we go through struggles in this life. There is a bigger plan, and it is all in His hands. I am praying for you.
    • "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." -3 John 2
    • I know the Lord can heal anyone. I have faith that He will take care of you and that His will will be even more spectacular than anything we can imagine.
    • Prayer is the best medicine that doctors don't write prescriptions for. Don't worry, I'll supply you with a healthy dose.
    • I pray that you hear from the Lord soon and that His answer is yes. I'm praying for a complete healing.
    • Prayer helps the ill and those who pray. I hope that we will be blessed in your recovery.
    • Healing of the heart sometimes precedes healing of the body. We will all eventually have a new body when we go on to live with our savior. Won't that be wonderful?
    • The power to heal the sick is within His control. Now we have to wait on His timing and trust in His wisdom.
    • I'll be praying as much as I can. God might even get tired of hearing from me, if that's even possible.
    • Remember the suffering that Jesus endured in his experience in the flesh. I know Jesus understands what we go through as humans with mortal bodies. It's comforting to know He can and has felt pain, and yet, he's our Lord.
    • Even though there's nothing I can say that will make you feel better, I can be with you and support you through whatever comes. I'll let our Lord do the talking.
