Your "thank you", that is.
I am horrible at sending "thank you" cards. Do you want to know a horrible secret I've carried around the last 6 1/2 years?
Of course you do. Everyone always wants to know secrets.
But I'm warning you, this one is awful.
We never sent out "thank you's" after our wedding.
It's true. And terrible. And I've felt awful about it all along.
But I'm really bad about writing cards and mailing them. Shoot, I can't even keep up with my email.
So, I probably need this week's challenge more than anyone else. The challenge is to send out at least one "Thank you" card. For some reason, when you write it down, it's so much more meaningful.
I have a special folder where I keep special things. And I'm pretty sure just about every thank you card I've ever received is in there. I was in charge of the youth girls at our church back in New England for a little while. I stopped when I had Little M and a few of the girls sent me "thank you" notes in the mail. I was so touched, I cried. It just made all of the stress and frustrations totally worth it.
And there's someone from where we used to live that I really owe a "thank you" to. I've been meaning to send it since we moved here. And that's why I'm making that this week's challenge. Because if I tell all of you to do it, I have to do it.
And I'm so excited. Because saying, "thanks" always makes you feel great too!
Anyway, the phone just rang and woke up Sweet P which means I have to go. But go forth and send out "thank you's". Maybe if you all do that it will somehow make things better for me not sending those "thank you's" when it really mattered. Maybe... right?
