The Power of a Thank You

I just spent an hour online this afternoon, trying to find a Winnie the Pooh thank you note.

You see, a while back, a friend (okay, it was Debra Mayhew) sent me a thank you note and I loved that thank you. I loved what it said on the outside as well as the inside. Here’s the note:


I remembered it well, but I thought it was a note card, when in fact, it was an actual thank you card. Which might account for the fact that I couldn’t find it online. Also, Debra sent me that card in 2011.

THREE years ago.

I can barely remember three hours ago, and yet I remembered that card after three years. And I finally remembered that I’d stashed it into a slot in my desk.

In the end, I ordered thank you notes that would tie in to the theme of my blog. They’re fine thank you notes, and I hope they’ll get here soon. I have a couple people I need to thank and an email just won’t do

Especially after the lesson I learned today: It truly is the thought that counts.

  1. And Cathy–the power of just a few handwritten notes to accompany the thought of a note or card is mind-boggling.

    I’m sure your notes are darling.

    • I have some Pooh pics that I’m going to frame and put in the office. My favorite is, “As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was about to happen.” Particularly appropriate for you, Linda! πŸ™‚

  2. Love this post, Cathy C! Yep, there’s nothing like a handwritten note, and even if it’s written on a paper napkin….as long as the thought is there! (I have a couple of those, by the way!) …and this just reminded me of a new site I heard about. I’ll have to dig out the business card and I’ll e-mail ya!
