6-18-09 Saying Thank You
Today as I snail-mailed some "thank you" cards and other notes, I got to thinking how seldom people do this anymore.
These days, a verbal "Thanks!" seems sufficient for most folks who are the recipient of a gift, gracious hospitality, or special acts of kindness and thoughtfulness. They might even go to the "trouble" of an e-mail or e-card thank you, or simply a card to which they have signed their name... but hand-written thank you notes seem to have become passé. It makes me sad.
There is nothing more uplifting to me, than to receive a hand-written card & note from a loved one (or even a stranger!). I challenge everyone to think of someone who deserves a "Thank You" and send them an unexpected hand-written thank you note... I guarantee it will bless them... and you!
Love & Light~
