I believe in thank you notes. I believe in sending them and in receiving them. Absolutely for gifts – every gift REQUIRES written acknowledgement – but also for random acts of kindness or thoughtful behavior and for hospitality.
Ask anyone, “Hey, how are you doing?” and they will most likely respond, “Busy. I am SOOO busy. There is just too much going on.”
People are busy. Everyone is busy.
Work. Play. Shopping. Recreation. Family. Cooking. Errands. Laundry. School. Housework.
Social commitments. Yard work. Commuting. Volunteering.
