Do you make your children write thank you's? Do you write thank you notes yourself? I didn't grow up writing them, but do see the importance in it. We probably all have a few events that we never finished writing thank you's for...aka, wedding! I am pretty sure there were quite a few people that never got one from me. I seriously regret it now. I hope those people aren't always thinking about it when they see me...and if you are, please know I was/am greatly appreciative of your gift!
I'm trying to teach Anne the importance of writing thank you notes. Especially to older family members that may be expecting one. And if we're being honest, it is so nice when you receive a little envelope in the mail that isn't a bill. A handwritten card really can not be replaced with an email or a private thank you message on facebook (although this is what I resort to most of the time!) It's just convenient and easy.
I have mixed feeling on the subject, but do know that I want to be better at writing notes to all the kind and generous people in my life.
I would love to hear your thoughts and how you deal with this :)
