Such a nice reminder that thank you letters are important even if they are not acknowledged. My family sends thank you notes to each other!


Thank you for this great post (as well as the many others). I truly value the thank you notes I have received, and usually keep a couple handy to re-read when I'm having a tough day, to remind me that the struggle is worth it. Any way we can share our feelings and compassion with others is needed in this world.

Hooray for thank you notes! I am a pediatric nurse practitioner, and every once in a while, I get a thank you note from a patient or a parent. I can not even begin to tell you how much those notes mean to me. I too save them and pull them out when I'm having a tough day. Thank you to all the thank you note writers in the world!!


My gosh, thank you for saving a couple lives over here. With all the crazy changes happening in the last decade my L.W.A. pen pal of several years and I made it through together and we're often thanking each other. She sent me a special card for that via Thanksgiving and it remains on my door to always remind me of how important we are to each other. Caring works!
