When To Send Thank You Notes

When To Send Thank You Notes
Hello Friends,
I think everyone is feeling the winter blues right now.  It takes a conserted effort this time of year to put smiles on our faces, think warm happy thoughts, and try not to be "grouchy."  To help us focus on the positives in our lives right now, let's think of someone we could send a thank-you card to.   Sometimes, we make the mistake of thinking that the only time we send thank-you cards is when we receive a gift from someone.  Well sure, that's a great time, but it's even more gratifying when we receive a thank-you card for other reasons.  Please allow me to suggest some other reasons that we might want to send someone a thank-you card, and I hope you will choose at least one idea to send a card to someone special today.  There's no doubt, if you do, you will brighten someone else's day.  What a great reward.
  • Thank you for being my friend
  • Thank you for being a great mom or dad
  • Thank you for listening
  • Thank you for spending time with me
  • Thank you for always being honest with me
  • Thank you for being my teacher
  • Thank you for being a good example
  • Thank you for your kind words
  • Thank you, thank you, thank you
There's so many reasons to be grateful for others.  I hope this helps, and I hope you get those little pens busy writing.
Have a great week,
Mary Manners
