Never pass up an opportunity to send a HAND WRITTEN note of thanks to someone
All I can say is do this. Make the time to let someone know they did something that made you take notice. Do it immediately after the event occurred, the next few days at the latest.
There is nothing more heartwarming than getting a note in the mail thanking you for something you have done and nothing drives home just how special it was like a hand written note.
Thank the teacher for the job she did with your child.
Thank the postal worker for always having a smile when she delivers your mail.
Thank the person that helped you at work.
Thank the people on your local neighborhood committee for giving their time to keep the neighborhood safe and maintained.
If you look around there are plenty of opportunities to thank the people in your life for what they are doing.
Start a tradition of sending thank you notes at least twice a month!
