I hope you each had a Merry Christmas! I am recovering from strep throat — super-fun! But I am taking a little down time today to make sure my thank you note lists are up to date. Did you keep lists of gifts as they were opened at your house? .
Making these lists is part of my practice of gratitude. I used to think of thank you notes as a chore, but I have turned them into on of my habits of gratitude in the last few years. After all, they aren’t just good manners; thank you notes are a means of expressing your Thanks after receiving a gift.
So before you put away all of the gifts you received, take a few minutes to write them down and give thanks for such thoughtful blessings from your family and friends! .
I have lots more about gratitude and thank you notes today in a new section on MidModernMama: Gratitude.
I am launching this new Gratitude section with a piece on How to Write Fabulous Thank You Notes and a list of suggestions for Host & Hostess Gifts. I also have a review of AJ Jacob’s new book, Thanks a Thousand where he sets off to thank everyone who makes his morning cup of coffee possible.
And just for fun I have a new list of Bubbles for New Years — champagne and sparkling wine to ring in the new year.
I hope you will stop by and check it out! And thank you! Thank you for being my loyal readers and for setting off with me on this new venture!
