Thanksgiving is just around the corner. This is a holiday that encourages us to be grateful for what we have. (The actual history of the holiday is a little controversial. I will let you read about that on your own.)

What I do like about this day is taking the time to realize all that we have. More importantly, it is a fantastic time to be thankful for all the people in our lives. Our lives are enriched when we share our time with the people we care so much about.

Sending a “thank you” card seems to be an etiquette that is disappearing as technology is becoming more present. It is easier to send a text than an email, and an email is easier that writing a handwritten note.

Technology is supposed to make our lives more efficient with our time, but not meant to replace the few personal touches we have left.

This Thanksgiving, send a thank you card to all those people you care about and tell them why they mean so much to you! Your holiday will be more meaningful when you focus on others.
