In today’s 24/7 hectic, work heavy lifestyle which consumes us all, it is very easy to forget the simple things. One of these is the pleasures of a hand written thank you note. It is incredibly easy to send a quick text message, or type an email, or to forget to thank people altogether.
There was a time where it was unforgivable to go to a friends for the evening, enjoy a fantastic dinner with your loved ones, and then not send a thank you note. Nowadays the opposite is true, I do not think I have ever received one! Being completely honest, I had never written one either. When I started running Leeming Brothers however, I very quickly realised the importance of a card or letter, expressing your thanks. You may be thinking “what’s the point?”, when it is so easy to send a text. But a text message is just as easily forgotten about, as it is to send one. I stay at a friends house a couple of times a year for an event I showcase at, and will always send he and his girlfriend a note to say, ‘Thank you’. They asked, ‘why didn’t I just send a text?’, but at the same time, have kept every hand written note and letter on the dresser in their apartment.
