OMG, I feel so awful! My sister miscarried last year at 8 weeks and the due date would have been later this May. They don't have children yet, but really want one. Anyways, she handled it very well, but I know its on her mind, especially now.
Anyways, they recently bought a house and I sent her a subscription to Real Simple as a house warming present. The problem is the only option with the gift subscription was to send it with a Mother's Day greeting. I couldn't even choose to not include a greeting! Well I opted for the ecard greeting but still gave it her email address. Why oh why didn't I think for two seconds longer and just give it my address?! Ugh, I feel like such a jerk that tomorrow Real Simple is going to be wishing her a Happy Mother's day from me. Any other year this wouldn't even be an issue, she'd laugh it off.
I sent her an email saying to ignore the ecard tomorrow, but I still feel like such a jerk!
Don't beat yourself up over it too badly. I'm sure she will appreciate the gesture, and I doubt that she will think you meant for them to send the e-card maliciously or anything like that. I'm sure she will understand if you explain to her that it didn't give you an option of sending it without the greeting card.
