Here are John Kralik's tips on writing thank you notes, as published in his excellent book, 365 Thank Yous: The Year a Simple Act of Daily Gratitude Changed My Life.
1. Send a small hand-written note focusing on one good thing somebody did for you. Handwriting is important and special as it conveys your physical presence to the receiver.
2.If you’re thanking someone for a gift, mention the gift itself in a positive tone and explain in a sentence or two how the gift is changing your life. Follow up by thanking the person for something you had forgotten to thank them for in the past, or mention the importance of your relationship.
3.You don’t have to thank people for material gifts only. Thank them for caring things they do and praise them for their goodness. Show an understanding of their special nature and effort.
4.Write as well as you can from your heart.
5.Write a lot of thank you notes. The more you write, the better you get at writing them.
I fully agree with Kralik that writing thank you notes is a good thing to do and makes the world a better place. It will also make YOU a better person.
Awaken to Love is such an amazing book that its a must read for all people longing to be in a true relationship. I am a divorced single mom and I found such healing and love encompassed in her words. Not only did reading this book allow me to open up to love in such a new and profound way, but it also showed me a path to compassion and forgiveness. My mind and soul have finally aligned and I am in complete gratitude.
Easy to read and beautifully written that can only come from a true and sincere heart ... and I believe that the author has both. Since reading this book people around me tell me that I have "the glow of being in love" and I know that I do because I have once again Awakened to Love! ~ Angie Romero
