My mom always had us write thank-you notes after Christmas and Birthdays to everyone who gave us gifts—especially family. And her mom did the same with her. I am trying to pass this down to my children, as well. There is just something about a hand-written note, whether to say hello or thank you or whatever, that is priceless.
My Grandma and mother are still note-writers, and I’ve kept some of their letters and will treasure them forever. I don’t think I can expect my boys to continue this as adults, since I don’t think it’s as normal for men to write letters, but hopefully they’ll at least learn to be more thankful!
The only problem is that, since they are still young, it is exhausting for both my child and myself because it takes a long time! So that is why we do these kind of cards.
I’ve seen these around, but just made some myself last week and thought I would share. Click HERE to download.
And I wanted to give a big THANK YOU to all those that have been helping my husband’s band out, and for all your nice comments! We really appreciate it!
