Writing thank you notes

I feel like I struggle with a lot of things that come naturally to other people. Things I know I shouldn’t struggle with, like walking, telling time, differentiating between left and right, and writing thank you notes.

It takes me hours to write just a couple. I have to plan out what I want to say in my head, write it on scrap paper, then write the note. And the writing is probably the hardest part because 1) my hand writing leaves something to be desired, 2) I’m not a strong speller, and 3) sometimes my hand moves faster than my brain. As in I write the wrong word or just a jumble of letters.

This one took me 3 tries:


And one of those times I misspelled “Kerry”. Yeah, you read that right. I got my own name wrong.

Here are tonight’s casualties:


It took ten cards to write 4 notes. HashTag KerryProblems.

    Conversely, I don’t have a problem with writing, spelling (including my own name), or thinking so fast my hand can’t keep up… I simply hate writing thank-you notes. I’d rather call, or wait until I see the person again. Besides, if I never see or hear from them, did they really need a handwritten note of thanks? Probably not! Dad

    FYI – My struggles??? Writing brief comments.

      I write thank you notes when I know I’m not going to see someone for a long time or if they gave me money, because that’s what you & Mom taught me to do, Dad! And yeah, this is a small novel, aha.
