Today on Raising Homemakers: Saying Thank You

‎“Blessings taken for granted are often forgotten.” ~Elisabeth Elliot

Autumn Splendor Thank You Notecards

As a child, my mother taught me to write thank you notes. She made sure that I had note cards, pens, an address book (made up mostly of relatives), and stamps at my disposal. And, she (wisely) monitored my progress to make sure that they were sent out in a timely manner.

This wasn’t always my favorite activity…and I am sorry to say that I didn’t always have the best attitude about doing it.

But, today, I am so thankful for her training in this area! And, I want to teach my children the importance of not only expressing gratitude to others, but doing so in a lovely, genuine, and articulate way.

  1. Hi~ I popped over from Jaynee Lockwood’s blog. She’s an amazing lady isn’ t she!!

    I loved your post on writing thank you notes. I love writing notes and having pretty note cards on hand seem to beg for me to write on them 🙂

    I liked your idea about saying thank you right away. The one problem I always encounter is I have more to say than fits on a little tiny thank you card 🙂

    You have beautiful children and I have enjoyed visiting here.
