“Showing gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful things human beings can do for each other. And despite my love of efficiency, I think that thank-you notes are best done the old-fashioned way, with pen and paper. ” – Professor Randy Pausch
As Christmas holidays come to an end, lets not forget how to properly thank people for their love and presents. A nice note to Grandma for hosting Christmas dinner or a thank you note to an Aunt or friend for just a simple t-shirt.
I love thank you notes. I love writing them with a colorful pen and on pretty stationary. I love sending them in the mail. No email or text message. An old fashioned USPS snail pail letter! People don’t think about it like they used to. It’s a great way to express how you feel about something, and it makes the receiver feels special as well.
Not only is a thank you card just plain nice, it shows appreciation for something that someone may have put a lot of work into. It may not be noticeable, but a thank you note would make a big difference in someones day. They put in an effort to get you a gift or do something for you, you can put in the effort to thank them for it!
