The Gift of Gratitude

Thank you notes may seem more like a chore than a gift, but what a delight it is for someone to open a handwritten card and read how happy you were with the gift they gave or service they provided. It's amazing how a few simple, well-thought-out words can impact the day of the original gift-giver.
