The Lost Art Of Handwritten Thank You Notes
We all know the pain of thank you notes. Look back to graduation or your wedding… the flashbacks of wrist cramps and semi-permanent ink-stains on the side of my hand are slowly creeping back into memory. I can remember writing hundreds of those dang things and I’m pretty sure the only reason I got them finished quickly is so my sweet-southern Mother would stop nagging me, ha! (Love you, Mom!)
In a world of constant texting and quick emails, hand-written thank-you’s tend to be forgotten. So, you can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was when Chad and I got a beautiful card in the mail at work today. Seriously… someone took some time on this one!
Take a look for yourself!
I was so impressed with the writing on the envelope that I opened it with a letter-opener, didn’t want to ruin it! The calligraphy is beautiful and they even used a wax seal on the back!
The inside is just as nice! Chad and I were speakers on a panel at last weekend’s St. Jude Country Cares seminar and this is a note from (we think) Big D. (Yes, the Big D from the Big D and Bubba Show) He was the moderator for our panel and we’ve really enjoyed working with him the last two years.
I think it’s time to bring the thank you notes back! Don’t you agree?!? Now, mine won’t be near as impressive as this one, but I think the time, effort and kind words put into the card are what matters.
