Spontaneous Well-Wishing Abilities

What’s your super power?

I witnessed someone’s super power in action two nights ago. We were having book club and a lovely potluck meal:

One of the ladies mentions that a friend not in attendance is having surgery soon.

“We should send her a card.”

Someone else turns to our hostess — “Do you have a card that would work?”

(This is not the card. The one she produced was much better.)
This is not the card. The one she produced was much better.

Up she gets, leaves the table for just a moment, and returns with a blank card with a beautiful little drawing on the front. The card is happily passed around the table and signed. It will probably be passed around again in a few days to catch a few people who are not with us. But, the moment, that impulse, is already captured, and inertia will carry it through to its intended destination — all because one of us can magically produce a perfect little card.
