On A Quest For...The Lost Art of Thank You Notes

"Showing gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful things humans can do for each other."
                                            Randy Pausch ~ The Last Lecture

So, when was the last time you sent an old fashioned, simple yet powerful, one of a kind gesture of thoughtful appreciation to someone who did something really nice for you ~ like a hand written thank you note? Well, that's too long.

Don't be one of those to loose such a beautiful thing in your life (along with other lost arts such as letter writing, secret keeping, or reading a real book to name a few). Choose to send notes of praise to family, friends, or even strangers who go out of their way to maybe buy a gift, donate some food, give some of their time, loan you some money. Choose not to be one of the ungrateful...send a note to someone today! And, yes...emails, phone calls, and IMs  (maybe not as eloquent) do count!!
