There has been a lot of friendship and goodness circulating through the U.S. Mail lately! Let me take a moment to document some of this happiness...Jen sent a cute thank you note for some birthday good mail I sent her. Thanks Jen!
Anna for some good mail I had sent. Thanks Anna! She and her darling family are in the exciting process of adopting a baby girl. Please keep them in your prayers as they travel next week for the birth.
Natasha sent a kind note of thanks this week too. She just got back from a trip to Disney to avoid the Mardis Gras craziness. Smart, huh? Thanks Natasha!
Kim. They have two precious boys Rylan and Jacob that Annelise loves to play with. Thanks Kim!
This darling polar bear card arrived from Kim's sweet mother, Olivia. She loves to make hand crafted cards too and they are always beautiful. Thank you Olivia!Patsy. Is it gorgeous or what?!? I love it! Thank you Patsy!
Once you start sending and receiving good mail going to the mailbox takes on a whole other meaning. Much of the good mail that comes my way is from blogging friends that I have never met in person. Isn't that cool? I certainly think so. It is a another way blogging helps people connect and interact. Remember that good mail does not have to be extravagant. Just a note telling the other person you were thinking of them constitutes good mail. Why not send some today?
When I started typing this post I soon realized many of the cards I received were thank you notes. I don't know about you, but I enjoy receiving these and I enjoy sending them. I do not expect them, but I do believe written thank you notes are a very thoughtful gesture. I must admit I am not always as prompt in writing my thank you notes as I should be, but I make every effort to acknowledge a kindness received. In today's technological society written thank yous might be considered an outdated social more and not necessary. I disagree, I believe they are appreciated and are important.
What do you think? Is a written thank you note still a must do? How do you usually say thank you? Let's discuss.
