i will remember your annivesary
i will remember your birthday
when your kid(s) were born
what your favorite things are *and always be on the lookout for them!*
i memorize addresses & phone numbers with ease. i try to keep in touch with EVERYONE. i have always been a letter writer. hand written letters, i know, i'm a dinosaur. i am an avid gift-giver when special occasions come around. i do my best to keep up with everyone's current locations, and the gossip involved with their lives. i am a ginormous (that's bigger and stronger than enormous in case you were wondering) supporter of the tried-and-true thank you note.
this brings me to my point. why don't people write thank-you's anymore? they don't even have to be hand written- send an email, twitter it, blog about it, facebook message, or use someecards.com. when someone sends you something for your birthday, or a wedding present, or a baby gift- the LEAST you can do is say 'thanks'!!
geez. what is this world coming to? or is it me- is there such a thing as being too thoughtful?
climbing off my soapbox, putting down the homemade megaphone.
