Monday Musings ~ On the importance of thank-you notes
Occasionally, I resort to lazy blogging. Today is one of those lazy days, so I hope you will overlook the method and still take something away from the message.
Receiving a thank-you note in the mail these days is a rare occurrence, at least that's been my experience in recent years. But that doesn't mean writing thank-you notes is no longer important. The way I see it, and the way I was raised, is if someone is kind enough to buy you a gift, to pick out a card just for you, to package the item and see that you receive it, either by standing in long lines to mail it, or by taking time out of their day to attend your special event, then the least you should do is take a few minutes and write to say "thank-you."
Maybe people are no longer as courteous as they used to be, or as grateful, or something, but, in my opinion, not sending a thank-you note to the people who cared enough to remember you with a gift shows a real lack of manners and class. I'd be curious to know your opinion.
I wrote about this subject recently in The Beaumont Enterprise. You'll need to click on the image (twice) in order to read it. Again, my apologies for lazy blogging.
