We can learn a lot about writing thank you letters from kids.
The other day, my 5-year-old neighbor peeked through the bushes, saw me in the driveway, and popped over. She handed me a beautiful hand made card (see right.)
Did I mention that she recently had a birthday?
On the front of the card, she had written the names of all our family members. The inside read, “Thank you for the ‘Big Bible Sticker Book’ and yummy fudge! I [heart] them! Love, Katelyn.”
Ah … refrigerator art!
As I stood looking at Katelyn’s masterpiece (on the fridge door where I’d affixed it with magnets), I noticed a few things.
Katelyn doesn’t know that she is already a development director’s dream.
But she knows how to write thank you letters.
