I have been meaning to send out thank you notes (these are part of my Woodland Picnic printables) to the family who came to Scarlett's birthday party and my intentions have just been intentions for long enough that it is now the week of Thanksgiving. And then I thought, why not send thankful notes instead, and rather than simply thanking them for celebrating and gift-giving, thank them for being in our family?
My mother once sent out cards at Thanksgiving instead of Christmas and included a beautiful letter about gratitude. This gesture isn't quite as large, but I'm sending a simple note this week to thank my family for surrounding us with their love and support every day of the year. We are especially thankful for that.
