There are many demands made of new mothers. We won’t go through all of them here (as you are likely living them and know all about them). But one of the Musts that can often fall through the cracks, or be performed poorly, is the old-fashioned thank-you note. Thank you notes are a part of your life soon after your child is born, or maybe even before. It’s this way because there are so many gifts and acts of service which find their way into your life. Etiquette calls for a thank you for each one, and you no doubt want to do the same.
It’s easy to go the easy way and just get a bunch of stock cards, then sign them and send them off. But that’s not the way you know you should go. Handwritten notes might seem a little old-fashioned, especially in the days of social media blasts and text messages. But there’s nothing like a handwritten note to deliver genuine gratitude, all contained in your words and in the unique lines and loops of your personal handwriting.
Uni-ball is the maker of some of finest, smoothest writing pens on the market. They’ve been doing it for years, and they’re hoping to reclaim handwriting for a new generation, one that sometimes seems to do without it. Keyboard typing, T9, voice to text, and many other ways threaten to relegate handwriting to the past. Take it back with your next thank you project. It may seem a little daunting to tackle a pile of cards, but writing out a heartfelt sentence or two can be a pleasure all its own. And it’s one which will deliver real happiness and satisfaction to the person who receives it. In a world of automated communications, genuine feeling stands out like a diamond in the rough.
