The Proper Thank You

There are many virtues that I strive to nurture in my children.   I want them to demonstrate compassion and believe in themselves.  I want them to have a solid moral compass and I want them to never underestimate the power of a handwritten thank you note.

We recently celebrated someone’s big fourth birthday (more sappy words to come).  My little man was big enough to comprise a list of friends to celebrate with – and big enough to contribute to the simple yet gracious way to thank others for their kindness.


He took pride in his work and insisted that the card insert have “NO LINES!” to guide him.  The end result was authentically Adrian – sweet pictures accompanied by delicious beginner handwriting.

Here’s to making it stick.
