When I was younger I absolutely hated writing thank you cards – I don’t know whether it was because I was shy or if I just couldn’t be bothered. Nevertheless my mom constantly reminded me of the importance of thank you cards. She made sure that after every birthday party, any other time I received a gift or if someone did something for me I wrote thank you cards. Now that I’m older I love writing thank you cards as it’s so lovely to tell people how much you appreciate them and what they’ve done for you. I also find the process – picking out a card, writing a note and sending it off – is a great chance to reflect and remember how much you have to be grateful and thankful for. Writing thank you cards is a habit that I’m now so grateful my mom instilled in me at such a young age and I hope to do the same when I have children.
I made these thank you cards which you can download and print to give to someone who’s done something lovely for you.
