Thank you Letter, Glass and My Dad

13 Jan

Our kids invariably complained when asked to write Thank you letters but I know they meant something special to my Mum and Dad as I discovered a box full of them when we sorted Dad’s things many years ago.  I know even more now how special they were as on Saturday we received a beautiful Thank you letter from one of our LiveWires. It will go into my ‘things to keep’ box.

On the back it says, “Thank you Granny and Grandgrand xx

For Christmas I received all the equipment I need to make pretty glass things without going to more classes. I have just finished my first piece done at home. It will look better hanging with the light through it but I have yet to source the rings for that purpose.

On this day in 1916 my Dad was born. He died in December 2004. It doesn’t matter how long ago you lost someone, there are moments when their loss feels like yesterday. We are so lucky to have all his books on our shelves so he is always with us.

    There is nothing like a handwritten note of thanks or just “thinking of you”…
    That might be something I do more this year…

    i love writing handwritten notes and cards of all kinds, as well as keeping the ones sent to me. they are like a snapshot of a certain place and moment in time.

    The art of writing Thank You notes! I love when I receive them and still send them out.
