Every proper southern woman must be proficient at writing a thank you note. I have gotten quite a bit of practice over the past few weeks. Wonderful family and friends have showered us with lots of items for the baby girl on her way. I tried very hard to make each note apply specifically to the gift giver. This is much harder than it sounds, and I do hope that everyone reads their note. It would be so much easier to have a stamp that says, "Dear _______. Thank you for the ___________. You are very thoughtful." Even if there was such a stamp, I could not use it. It would defeat the purpose of this website, and society as a whole would collapse. If you have any tips on writing the perfect thank you note, let me know. I spend a great deal of time in the notes discussing past events or funny stories and very little time thanking for the gift. I guess I should write more emails to people. Apparently, Facebook is not fulfilling my communication needs.
