l ❤️love hand written thank you notes.
Every time I receive these very rare gems I get so excited that you can find me standing at the curb in front of my house reading it right away....with a big smile on my face.
The authors of these letters took the time to take pen to paper to express themselves. The value of these handwritten notes have stayed with me long after I received them. I had saved most of these notes and when cleaning up to move I can across several of them , they made me feel just as good as they did the day I originally receivd them.
Maybe it was just a note to thank someone for taking a few minutes to do something for you , or simply the gift of someone's time, their advice, or a helping hand. Maybe someone did something thoughtful , in return the author returns the favor with the gift of their time writing a note.
Less people take the time to take pen to paper to express themselves. Let's not let texting and e-mails replace the personal touch. Don't let technology steal any sort of personal connection. I think an handwritten note is an important means of communication in both the personal and professional world. I want to maintain relationships. We need to understand the value of the writing notes by hand.
In my professional life I know I think highly of the business contact who still sees value in this lost form of communication , and it does set them apart from the average. this sets the true professional apart and lets the recipient know you care.
I think the good news is it can be brief . A handwritten thank you does not need to be lengthy to show your feelings. If that is what is holding you back, GET OVER IT! Write your note in your own handwriting. don't use the excuse that your handwriting is unattractive or just plain illegible. It doesn’t matter!
People won't remember your handwriting! They will remember your effort.....
Maybe........the next time you open that mail box you will find yourself standing at the curb with a smile on your face !
Hello...I'm Rene trying to live my life simply with only the things that I love , and make my heart sing .....
