Thank you notes...
|A Hallmark card chosen for a thank you note for my friend who cycles everywhere...|
One of my favourite things is love letters.
Another one is reading handwritten recipes and diaries
Another is remembering to write thank you notes.
I know some of my "busier" friends and family think this is corny and unnecessary, but I like to say thank your properly. Sometimes it IS just a text or an email.
But other times, for certain people, I am drawn to take pen to paper quite literally and write a real honest to goodness handwritten thank you note.
My blogging friend Clairey is passionate about handwriting.
I have posted about the importance of handwritten notes before.
And so today all these things combine, with a mini handwriting challenge.
My school mum friend Karen deserves more thank you's than I can ever give her.
She is the Mum at school who ALWAYS looks out for my kids. She sweeps Lexie into her arms for cuddles all the time. If I am ever late, I know Karen will always keep an eye.
Karen is the school Mum that does volunteer reading and craft with the classes every.single.day. They adore her.
Karen is the school Mum that has, at lightening speed, developed gardens in all the spare pockets of earth around the school and has groups of kids involved in watering and picking of produce.
Karen is the school Mum that scours the op shops for costumes and craft stuff for Olivia and Lexie and Charlie.
Karen is the school Mum that brings extra snacks on a Monday afternoon as she knows the whole netball team and their siblings will get peckish.
Karen is the school Mum who scores at netball every.single.week.
Karen is the school Mum who asked me, a few weeks before the Easter holidays, if Olivia and Charlie and Lexie would like a full days play date at her house, to save them and me a day of vacation care. And planned so many activities for them, that the kids were reticent to come home!
Do you know a Karen?
Do you thank her enough?
Do you ever write handwritten thank you notes?
