My mother has always taken me to task when it
comes to writing thank you notes. I asked her to share her heart on this here in our November almanac.
Betony has also designed a thank you card you can print from home, if you want to let my mom take you to task in her thank you note challenge too.
On Thank You Notes
by Dianne Coons
“When I was a little girl, I have fond memories of my mother writing thank you notes at the kitchen table while drinking coffee with LOTS of cream. I got to draw pictures for my grandparents, aunts and uncles, or family friends that were included in her letters. I thought at the time it was much fun.
However, as I got older and had to write my own notes…it became a drag. Mother was insistent!! Today, I know why.
Yes, there is the email and a text, and for practical reasons (like letting them know you received their gift), it works great, but nothing takes the place of a handwritten note.
During this Thanksgiving month when we sit at the table and remember all the things for which we are thankful, take a minute to send a personal note to others and share why you are thankful for them.”
