Indeed that was extra nice for that patient to take time & notice your efforts...
@ManicProgressive that's beautiful what you do...I too believe it is because of special thanks I've been given long ago led me to my love of sending thank you & thinking of you cards Yes@2Papa some folks still write cards & use postage stamps I'm definitely one of them. When I moved 4 hours away from where was as a result of divorce my good friend wrote me letters which touched my heart... just sharing what she been doing few days I began writing her & always enjoyed getting a letter from her and when after 2 years I returned close to area I left and can see her anytime choose. We still write each other letters... ...its a great comfort also feel it is such a loss for young generations not growing up with this... I drop a note to my 2 granddaughters every once in a while... make them feel special & know I'm thinking about them. Lots of folks(even couple guys met) believe you can have/ build relationships with texting... not to me Yes I text my family and folks know but believe as I told these guys you should chat on phone and meet in person to get to know a person...... As my usual I got kinda sidetracked...
Anyway I got a beautiful note sent from a pastor couple years ago that touched me & I so appreciated his effort & time to write made me feel welcome & special.
My dad traveled for most of my life when I was teen his letters from Japan were blessing still have most of those.
My mom loved cards which instilled in me that love of giving cards.
I enjoy dropping a note to someone I meet in everyday life that goes out of their way & if can't do note I use today's tools : posting nice Google maps review or dropping an email.
The world is such a rush and stressful...go go place...I feel grateful that with age having the realization that that stress I once lived for is not fulfilling... slowing down smelling the roses and making time to notice those who make a special effort really matter and should be recognized & told so & it'll make a difference in their lives... I'm living witness to some dark moments in my life where a note or phone call saved me and helped me find my way back... So Smile when you can it'll bless you as well as others....
Grateful for this thread Thanks,

I am a surgical technologist and have been for 27 yrs. , it was about one yr ago a week before Xmas one of the doctors that I worked with 2 wks prior went to the control desk looking for me . I was called by my supervisor that he was asking for me upon meeting him (doc ) he handed me a card from the person ( pt.) we did surgery on , he had written me a very heart felt thank you for helping save his life ( Abd.Aortic Aneurism ) . It was very unexpected , It made me cry a very happy cry and I was on a emotional high all day . Doctors see and hear from their patients , but this is a first for me and it made me feel Great Thx
You know how everyone writes in to complain about stuff? I write in to companies and government offices to give compliments. I figured they only hear from people when things are bad, so I decided to write in when things are good.
I almost always hear back. They are so thrilled somone is happy with their work.
And the reason I do it? I got one of those letters about 20 years ago. I will never forget how much it meant that a customer noticed and took the time to write in.
