If there is one thing that has become a lost art, it’s writing a thank-you note. Whether it’s for presents a child receives after a birthday party, a wedding gift or for any simple occasion, it’s so sad to see that less and less people out there are taking the time to show their appreciation for someone who has gone over and beyond to put a smile on their friend’s face.
Because technically, how long does it take to write a short, simple note? Two minutes at the most?
Unfortunately, less and less people are doing it, and whatever their excuse maybe, I feel that no one is teaching their children the proper manners they need in order to grow up as appreciative, humble human beings. And that includes saying the words “Thank You” once in awhile, too.
