A Southern Girl Trying to Make a Difference in Sin City

Handwritten correspondence is a lost art.  Despite the fact that it is in poor etiquette to do so, I will be the first to admit that I would prefer to send a thank you email or text than to write a note of appreciation.  Today I forced myself to sit down and write charming thank you notes for the gifts I received over the holidays.  I am pretty proud of the fact that I remembered to use stationery and personalize each one.   While it would have been effortless to exaggerate and ramble, I did not.  I went the extra mile and penned a few for the most trivial of things.  I know the extra effort will go a long way and made me feel better for taking the time to be thoughtful and sincere.

One thought on “Much Obliged

  1. coy says:

    We usually get gifts from H’s parents or sister so we just call them on the phone to say thank you. H’s mother raised them to write thank you notes and his middle sister still diligently does. I used to have note cards pre-printed with my name on the front. I ran out of those and too cheap to get new ones so I thank people with phone calls these days.
