I was going through a very difficult time for many months. During that time, lots of people were reaching out to me. But there were about 10 people who were very consistent. Sending texts, calling, bringing meals, etc. and didn't stop. Instead of just sending a text thanking them, I took the time to hand write individual notes, thanking them for their specific actions and then mailed them the notes. They were all shocked and couldn't believe I would take the time to do this while I was going through such a difficult time. It made me feel good to see the smiles on their faces or hear the smile in the voices. I wanted them to know how much I appreciated their acts of kindness towards me.
