Thank You Card Time!

Hello Readers!

When the holidays roll around, gifts are exchanged, parties are held, and special events keep us busy with family and friends. As the year continues, birthday parties and special days, (Mother’s and Father’s Day, Graduations, Weddings and Baby Showers) bring us more gifts and gestures of kindness.

Once the gifts are opened and the parties are over, we need to remember to share our appreciation toward others. Yes, I am referring to sending an actual thank you card!

A verbal thank you should always be given at the time of receiving a gift or a thoughtful gesture from someone. When a person receives an actual thank you note in their home mailbox, they will be so appreciative of your effort. After all, they took the time to purchase, perhaps wrap and deliver your gift. Taking a few minutes to write them a thank you note will make you feel better too!

Children should also write a thank you note. Perhaps making a drawing or a simple thank you on a card will let them know how important it is to show appreciation to others. When they put the stamp on the envelope, it can give them a sense of accomplishment of sending something important through the mail. It is also a great way for them to develop communication skills.

When we are surrounded with texts, emails, and other electronic forms of communication, we tend to forget the more personal ways of connecting to people. Let’s bring back these more traditional ways of reaching out to one another. They do say history repeats itself! I hope sending actual mail to others will become popular again….we can make it happen!

I truly believe the pendulum will swing the other way, as many of us are looking for more personal ways to communicate with others. Taking a few minutes to call, (not text or email) someone to see how they’re doing, or sending them an actual card or letter can bring everyone closer in their relationships to others.

Everyone loves to receive something special in the mail. When you sift through the flyers and junk mail you receive, it is especially nice to find an envelope from someone you know. You will open that envelope first! Right?

I do hope you and your children send thank you notes to others, and that you receive notes of thanks from your family and friends! It’s the right thing to do!

Enjoy your day and thank you for visiting!
