Recently, I sent a small graduation gift to Kate, daughter of my friend, Shelly. (author of a great blog, Life on the Wild Side)
The following week, this beauty arrived in my mailbox.
A thoughtful, handwritten note on a really cute card. And check out the envelope. Kate does calligraphy for wedding invitations.
"In my day", (ages ago) I had personal mail delivered by the postman almost every day. Sometimes, I had what I called "a good mail day" and several would arrive at once.
Well, we know those days are over. (sniff)
I still appreciate a thank you e.mail, a thank you text or a thank you note via Facebook. But if you really want to make my day ... pop your thank you note in the mail. Thank YOU, Kate.
My daughter, Christy, has a blog Postcards to Authors, where every week she writes (and mails) postcards to authors to say thanks for writing good books.
When was the last time you received a thank you note in the mail? Or wrote one?
