#ThankfulActs, Day 2: Write a Thank-You Note



How did yesterday's challenge go?  Did you thank a door holder? I thanked a man who held the door open for my daughter and me, and (thinking of this challenge) I remembered to speak my thanks clearly.  I tried to make eye contact, but he wasn't looking at me, so I didn't succeed with that.  Overall, though, I think he recognized that I was sincere in my thanks.  As an added bonus, my daughter also spoke up and clearly thanked him as well.

The #ThankfulActs challenge for today is to write a thank-you note. We might have specific thank-you note challenges later in the month, but for today, feel free to choose anyone as the recipient.

Find a pen and paper or card, and tell someone thank you.  Be specific in your thanks.  In this time of texts and instant messages, receiving a hand-written note will be a pleasant surprise.  

I'd love to hear how your #ThankfulActs are going, and if you have any suggestions for future challenges, please let me know.  Thanks!

Thanks for notes, and mail carriers who deliver them.

  2. I accept! My baby sister really helped me out this week and while I did thank her on the phone and I did thank her by email this would make her feel very special!

    1. Handwritten notes are less common than they used to be; I'm sure she would be thrilled!

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
