My mother - we call her "Lola", which is Tagalog for grandmother - always hounds me about Thank you's. Even to this day, she will call me after I have posted pictures on Facebook of one of her apo's (grandchild) birthdays and she will ask me - "Did you send thank you cards?". Of which I always roll my eyes and say one of two things:
1. "Ugh, yes mom, I did!" or
2. "Ugh, I'm almost done with them!"
It's a lost art though, isn't it, to write an honest to goodness thank you card. It's so much easier to call, text or email a Thank You. I, personally, love to send and receive all versions of Thanks, but I do have a stack of blank cards here at home at the ready. Because while most folks have a Devil and an Angel on their shoulders, I also have a Lola right on my head.
The virtual Lola has actually been jumping on my cranium for a while now, because I hadn't sent a proper, handwritten, thank you to a couple of friends who have done such thoughtful things for me these last couple of months.
Thoughtful doesn't really cover it, because these two ladies gave up some loved items of theirs to share with me, so I thought a little made item for each of them would give my thank you card a little bit more of an oomph.
...a thong for one...
...a bracelet for the other...
I also wanted me to make sure I tell you all Thank You for being such great readers, some for a few years. Although I haven't celebrated a Blogversary, it's been more than 5 years that I have took to writing on the internet! Thank you for supporting me every step of the way.
Much love, Tif
