THANK YOU NOTES

Thank You notes are part of being a pastor’s wife.

And the thing is – there are so many fun, fancy, cool thank you notes out there to purchase and keep for those “thank-you-note” moments.  Or maybe you like to make your own cards.  Hey, that’s great, too. But don’t feel like you have to make your own. Any card will do. 

A “thank you” can do wonders.

Someone invites you over to dinner – send a “thank you” note.

Someone bakes you cookies for Christmas – send a “thank you” note.

Someone takes you out to dinner – send a “thank you” note.

I thought about this tonight because I’m writing a “thank you” note to our neighbors who have been visibly and not so visibly keeping my driveway and walk shoveled this winter. I had some brightly, colored notes that came in a box with four different types of cards. They simply said in BIG LETTER font on the front either THANKS, or LAUGH, or SMILE, or SORRY.

As I went through my cards tonight, I realized I didn’t have any THANKS cards left, but I had all four SORRY ones left.

Which much mean that I spend more time in my life being THANKFUL, than SORRY.

Not sure if that’s good or bad.
