I have never noticed before how nice it is to get a Thank You card. Especially when it is from a friend. I don't think it matters as much when you get one from a distant relative you sent a wedding present to or something like that. Maybe I'm wrong. But I have received several Thank You cards recently, so very thoughtful, and every one of them made me want to write a Thank You card back. I almost did, but I talked myself out of it because it is a bit silly to write a Thank You card for a Thank You card, and besides that, then that person might feel they needed to thank me for thanking them, and I might feel like thanking them for thanking me for thanking them...it could on on like that forever.
Sadly, I am absolutely horrible about writing Thank You cards. I believe I managed to do it after my wedding, but after that, I have just gotten worse and worse. Partly this is because I don't like to write them. I always feel so awkward about it. I want them to be sincere, but in my efforts to make them sound sincere, I feel like they actually sound more fake. Perhaps I'm overthinking it, but there you have it.
In any case, if you are reading this and have sent me a thank you card recently, know that it meant a lot to me.
And on the flip side, if you are a person who never received a Thank You card from me and you should have, know that I am very sorry, and I am sincerely thankful even though I didn't write it. (See how fake that sounds? But I really do mean it!)
