Woman Holding a Thank You Pop-Up Paper Flower Bouquet


One of the best ways to nurture a relationship is to send a thank you message. Did you know that gratitude can help you connect with others and make you healthier? Practicing gratitude improves mental health, relationships, and even physical well-being. 

Gratitude deepens your bonds with others & generates a positive exchange of emotions. As Benedictine monk & gratitude expert David Steindl-Rast said, "It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful." 

Many people send thank you cards for specific events. For example, it is customary to send a thank you note following a bridal or baby shower, and some people send thank-yous for birthday or Christmas gifts.

Thank you cards come in handy for many occasions. You may want to thank a teacher, coach, employee, nurse, boss, or relative for supporting you. Many teachers say their favorite gift to receive is a handwritten note. Gratitude uplifts people who make a difference in your life. 

Send a thank you note to the nurse who cared for you, a friend who housesat for you, or a teacher who helped you achieve your goals. In addition, you can send your thanks to those who sent you sympathy flowers or to the families of fallen veterans on Memorial Day. 

You'll find quotes to include within thank you cards for virtually any person or occasion as you read on. We hope you find the perfect words to communicate your gratitude. It doesn't have to be a huge to-do; you can send a "thanks" for a friendly smile that brightened your day.
