To me, there is something so special about saying thank you. I remember a church lesson when I was probably 14 about the importance of thanking others for what they do. The teacher also quoted Marjorie Hinkley who said that saying "thank you" is a mark of an educated person.
I have never forgotten that lesson and I feel like it has changed my life in a significant way. Since then, I have tried my hardest to be a thankful person: to thank my loved ones for acts of kindness, to thank acquaintances for a job well done, to thank a complete stranger for opening the door for me.
When Lance and I were married, I was overwhelmed at the amount of generous gifts we received from everyone. I insisted on writing each of the thank you cards by hand, not realizing that I would literally get blisters from writing so long. But it was worth it! I wanted each person to know how much their kindness meant to us.
I also LOVE getting a thank you card in the mail-- or finding one lying on my pillow, placed lovingly by a dear friend or a sweet husband.
So, as you can see-- I really mean it when I say I get EXCITED about thank you cards :)
