A simple note

Sometimes we forget the significance of a small, old fashioned gesture like a Thank You card. With all our technology - emails, e-cards, text messages etc - we sometimes go for the instant gratification that technology provides.
Do you remember when you were a kid and your Mom nagged you for days to write those notes? All the grumbling and fuss, as this little chore was interrupting important things like playing or watching cartoons. But as we all know now......Mom did know best! Because there is nothing like a hand written thank you note!
Today I was the recipient of such a treasure. A little note from Sheri at Shabby Sheep. She made my day. And reminded me again that small gestures mean big things. And hand written thank you notes are a rarity these days. So the next time someone does something thoughtful and/or un-expected, I will write a note. Plus, isn't it nice to get something in the mail that is not a bill!!


  1. You got that right, dear Kim!!

    I only seem to get envelops with windows in them.

  2. Kim, how true that is! I miss getting something personal in the mail....thanks for jogging my memory!! Handwritten notes, are indeed, the best!!

  3. Yes! I've had this same discussion lately with friends. It means so much, plus....if you've mailed something you know for sure that it arrived when you receive a thank you note (avoids embarrassing phone calls wondering if the package ever made it). I also received a note from sweet Sheri!
