Do People Write Thank You Letters Anymore?

I still write thank you letters. I make my kids write thank you letters when someone takes the time to mail them something. But I'm finding a lot of people don't do this anymore.

I personally love when I get mail that isn't a bill. There's something special about a handwritten note. Plus, it tells the person you really appreciate what they've sent. A text is so impersonal.

Sometimes my daughter argues when I tell her to write a thank you letter. But I remind her that she shouldn't be ungrateful. She'll say she can tell the person over the phone that she's appreciative. But I insist on a thank you note. I remember grumbling when I had to write them as a kid. But I'm glad I had to write them and I hope Natalie will feel the same when she's older. You're taking a brief moment out of your day to make someone else smile.

I don't just send thank you letters. Sometimes I send "thinking of you letters." I've kept a lot of letters people have sent me over the years. They are amazing memories. Some of my favorites are from my Nana Jo. She's 95 now and I appreciate all the advice she's given me over the years. I also have letters that my friends and I wrote to each other. Letters that my husband sent me when he was in basic training. On a TDY. Deployed They all mean the world to me.

So how about it? Will you be mailing a card? If someone has mailed you something, consider sending them a thank you card. They'll appreciate it.

Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple!

Hey, It's Okay....

--To have started watching The Crown on Netflix. It's really good.

--To be glad that a lot of my shows are coming back from fall break this week.

--To have watched Sully with my husband over the weekend. I didn't realize all the crap Sully went through.

--To have booked our fast passes for our trip to Disney. Yay!

--To be ordering Natalie's classroom Valentines from Etsy. You can get original things there.

--To think these new cereals are delicious. I do love my Girl Scout cookies, that's for sure.
