Gratitude still belongs in a note.

Today, the kids and I will sit down and write thank you cards for our Christmas gifts. My mother was adamant about this growing up; it is imperative to acknowledge the generosity of others. When I get these notes -- rarer and rarer these days -- I always appreciate the time set aside to pick a card, hand write words, place a stamp, and send it my way. It's always nice to open the mailbox and see something personal -- not a bulk mailer or a bill (and even those of often electronic now). I'm looking forward to writing my notes. If I could write one to the Smith community, it would say, \"Thank you for sharing your stories. Thank you for the feelings of connection; even though we don't see each other, you have given me a rare and precious glimpse into your lives. Thank you for the support at times when I needed it, the shared moments of levity, and the 6 words to ponder. I wish you the best in the New Year!\" With gratitude.
