“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.” – Anon
Saying thank you is not limited by time or space. A kind gesture may be large, small, or even behind the scenes. At this time of year be diligent with saying thank you to family, friends, and coworkers.
Handwrite the thank you note. Don’t just text! Also avoid sending an email or typed letter. A handwritten note is a more sincere way to express gratitude for a kindness.
Use nice stationary. If you are an arts and craft person, you can make it yourself or make it family time with kids. You may also choose to buy the stationary. Choose something that fits your style. There are options. You may decide on embossed or monogrammed stationary. Or something more casual from the local office supply store.
Personalize your message. If you expect to see the person soon, reference the event and your anticipation. If the person gave you an item you can use later, share how and when you plan to use it.
Better late than never. Even if you think it is too late to send a note, send it anyway. It’s the thought that counts.
Use your best handwriting. You might want to practice your message on plain paper a few times. Then when you are ready, put your very best on the stationary.
Send a thanks, no matter how small. At this time of year, you never know what someone may be dealing with on a personal level. Say thank you no matter how small the gesture. Say thank you often. There is no limit to experiencing and expressing gratitude.
