As we head into this holiday weekend of giving thanks, I have inevitably been thinking about all the things that I am thankful for. Some of them are obvious, the love and support of my family and friends, a job that I adore, a new president, to name a few. But, if I start thinking about the small little details and extras that make my day-to-day life special, one of the things that I am truly grateful for are the handmade notes (or, heck, just any handwritten note) that I receive from friends. It’s that ray of sunshine that can brighten the gloomiest of days.
Whether it’s birthday wishes, a thank you, or just simply a note to say hello…knowing that you have friends that care about you enough to take a moment to sit down and send something so personal to you is truly something to be thankful for.
