I was taught that you write personalized thank you notes to people who give you gifts or do nice things for you. Thank the giver for the specific item, mention how you will use it or why you will enjoy having it, offer a personal comment that is specific to the giver, and thank him/her once again. And I am trying to teach Gloria the same thing.
But it's really hard when she keeps receiving those fill-in-the-blank thank you notes.
You know, the ones that say
Thank you for the _________.
Your friend, __________
Or some variation on that general theme.
Those things make me crazy.
I know they are simple.
I know they are quick.
But they don't express anything other than "I'm doing this because I have to."
There's no thought.
No personal touch.
Maybe I'm just "old."
I know I'm older than many of the other moms from Gloria's class.
Or maybe I'm just "old fashioned"
Don't like those new-fangled, time saving thank you notes!
We will still write personal notes each time a thank you note is needed.
Thank you so much for reading this post. I really appreciate the time you spend reading my blog. I love to see my stat counter climb each week! And comments? Those are awesome! I hope you'll come back again soon!
