I try to make a habit out of sending out thank you note cards. I do this because I LOVE stationery. Always have. Always will. Sure, I appreciate technology and use it constantly. But there is still something special and authentic about sending out a special paper thank you.
What I find amusing, interesting and a little sad is that many people are actually shocked when the receive a thank you note in the mail. I have received phone calls, email messages, text messages and social media posts from people expressing just how surprised they were to receive a thank you note and just how much they appreciate it!
Shock someone today. Encourage your kids to shock someone--- in a good way.
P.S. Grandmothers love handwritten thank you notes from grandkids. They may not tell you that, mom and dad, but they tell me!
