We have never been more delighted to send graduation Thank You cards on so many levels. First, our son Matthew graduated college this year. Second, we are very blessed to have so many friends and family give Matthew graduation gifts and third, Matthew earned a scholarship to graduate school. Happy, Happy Day!
We have always instilled in our children that writing thank you notes was the correct thing to do when they received gifts and they have always done so enthusiastically. Matthew wants to send photo graduation Thank You cards this time with a picture from his graduation day. We decided to order a folded photo card so that he could write a personal note of thanks to the recipients. I remember when the children were too young to write out their own cards and I would sit with them and ask them what they wanted to say about the gift they received. I would write it all down and read it back. It may have been as simple as “Thanks for the red truck Grandma, I love it” but it was an acknowledgement from the heart and always included a hand drawn picture or an attempt at a signature.
