The lost art of saying thank you


Perhaps I’m old fashioned but I like sending thank you cards. I know,  yawn.
But in an effort to be intentional and let people know that I’m appreciative, I’m on a mission to make this a priority this year.

It doesn’t even have to be fancy. You can take a piece of card stock and cut it in half, write


on the front and then proceed with your note. Forget about spending $4-5 per card at Hallmark, just do your own thing.

The point is, in our busy world of electronic everything, take the time to say thanks to someone or perhap send a congratulations more to a new mom. I LOVE getting snail mail. It’s like the best thing ever.

How can you express thankfulness to the people in your life today?

    I have a great book that gives some tips on writing all kinds of personal notes, including thank you notes. It’s a handy reference. I love it.
