Sending Thanks to a Birthday Boy – Gratitude Project
Letter Two: Birthday recipient. Birthdays are yearly events. This is the time kiddos have parties and receive gifts, cards, and lots of well-wishes. But as we age the festivities tend to die down. We often take the birthday person for granted.
Birthdays are a great time to share why you appreciate the birthday honoree. Yes we ought to give our thanks many times a year. We shouldn’t need a “holiday” to remind us of doing this. But truthfully I am not always good at remembering this activity.
How good are you at this?
So I always welcome the opportunity to buy a birthday card with a gushy sentiment endorsed with more gushy sentiments.
I rarely buy a funny card. My reasoning is strange. “What if this is the last card they ever get from me? I want to make sure they know how much I care and how highly I think of them.”
So today I wrote a thank you birthday note to my brother-in-law. I won’t tell you what I wrote until he gets the card.
I am writing at least 36 letters expressing my gratitude. And I want to pray for them on that day as well. Go here for the original post and list of recipients. I am writing about it here in hopes that it spurs someone on to write their own gratitude letters.
