Thank You Notes For Expressions Of Sympathy Ė Speaking From The Heart
Thank you notes used as expression's of one's sympathy is a great way to show sincerity. There is little doubt that speaking from the heart in times of trouble is a difficult task for even the strongest of us. Sometimes we physically just canít do it and that makes us feel even worse. Well, when you canít speak something aloud, for whatever reason, but you have an obligation to do so itís best to put pen to paper. Writing thank you notes, sympathy notes or condolences really allows us to express ourselves well.
When writing a sympathy card or sympathy thank you note cards, use a notepad for a rough draft because often what comes out in the beginning isnít quite right, itís in the writing that we begin to see more clearing what we really need and want to say. Take your time with it. Get the words for thank you notes right because this is a note that will mean the world to someone.
If someoneís loved one has passed on they are grieving and need to remember all the good things in life, help them to remember. Also help them to remember all the wonderful times that they spent with the person. Make it as personal and uplifting as you can.
Sometimes the words donít come easy, and it can be appropriate the search out religious books or famous authors for a quote to help put things into perspective. Of course, donít make it too stiff or cold, definitely add some words of your own to personalize it as well.
Even if you do attend the funeral or wake of a person, itís best to send a personal note to the family members because often times we really donít get to talk to family and truly express ourselves to the fullest in public.
There are many times in life when tragedy strikes from out of the blue, it happens to everyone sooner or later and when it does we all need a lot of extra support to keep up our strength and drive.
Sending a sympathy card is appropriate no matter the tragedy. When someone is diagnosed with cancer or a child is born with a disability those are indeed difficult times, we need to reach out to those effected.
However, sometimes reaching out in person just isnít possible because of physical distance, notecards are the perfect remedy.
Sometimes we may not know the person all that well, they may be an office acquaintance, and therefore reaching is out to them is more difficult. It never hurts to send them a private note and let them know that they have your sympathy. An act of kindness such as this can make a huge difference, all of a sudden the world isnít so cold.
Simply speak from the heart and make it authentic. There is only one ďyouĒ in this world and you have the power to bring so much love, do it in your own personal way. One person can make a difference, never believe that your card isnít important even if you donít get any response back. Many times people deal with grief in a very private way, that is simply the nature of the healing process.
