Sentence structure and word "your"
The family would appreciate your sending
Joyce a Birthday Card
On October 29th we will surprise her with birthday cards from all her friends!
Please include a “remember when” sentence or two.
Your card will make her birthday very special
Question: Is the first sentence above written correctly? It's the word "your" I am questioning.
Do you have another idea on how to restructure the sentence with the same idea?
'Your' is correct here, as 'sending' functions as a noun so requires a possessive. Of course this usage is changing and 'you' would be acceptable.
