I love Christmas and especially like to thank my mail man and trash men by making healthy zucchini white chocolate chip cookies. I wanted to write a little thank you note to attach. Is there a note I can use for a template?
Why not just "wing it" from your heart? Write the first sentence, thanking the person for his/her job well done; use the second sentence for saying how much you appreciate their service; and the third sentence wishing him or her a delightful holiday season and happy and healthy new year. I understand you mean well by asking for a template, but the best thank you notes aren't templates, they are real words of individual gratitude, thoughtful insight, and well wishes. If you simply speak from your heart, a template is not necessary.
"Thank you for sending a kind message to those that offer you routine services. You may think your works are merely routine and/or required, but I truly appreciate your efforts with sincere gratitude. Wishing you and yours the best. The world is a better place because of your kindnesses."
I wrote that last paragraph to you, sincerely, but without a template. I truly hope it helps you look at "templates" in a colder light. You are already so far ahead of the curve by giving a gift of food, why spoil it with a "template" message? You don't need a template, your heart is already in the right place to simply "wing it!" I have every confidence you can find the right words to make your service workers' day, week, month and year by simply speaking from your heart.
Be sure to check with both the post office and sanitation department before gifting to these two hard working groups. Sometimes they are not allowed to accept gifts.
You could try quotegarden.com for some poetry etc if that would help. but I agree with KansasCindy, just say it from your heart. Your own words are always the best. Something like: Thank you for all you do, I appreciate it greatly, Have a happy holiday season and thanks again.
I agree with KansasCindy about making the thank you handwritten from the heart in a note or even a simple Christmas card. You could place a sticker or draw a little holiday tree or ornament on the envelope seal for an added touch.
I would also like to add that, as much as you would like to give someone your homemade cookies, they might just get thrown away because they really don't know you well enough to trust you (sad but true in this day and age). Perhaps you could get them an inexpensive wrapped box of chocolates or sealed package of cookies instead with a handwritten card? I don't know about sanitation workers but US Postal workers are definitely allowed to receive gifts as long as it's not cash.
First, I'd not mention the Zuchini if those are men. Just smile sweetly or leave a note of appreciation. There's something about veggies in cookies they just don't normally eat or appreciate. If they don't want them, give them to a neighbor who's expecting. You're a dear.
Also, they aren't supposed to accept gifts, I'm told. I read that most postmen are ex-military now, trained to watch for folks who might be stronger, bolder Christians and are to report them all. I confronted mine one day and learned that I had read correctly. He was embarrassed to admit it but he did. He was replaced by another more serious and quieter one shortly thereafter. One reason this nation is in the mess it's in is because Christians were told to be silent and were too kind to ignore that demand.
It's time to speak the Truth in love, and pray for all who need it, regardless, because Jesus returns soon just ahead, and it's a dangerous time to do nothing but be silent and let it all happen. "The prayers of a righteous person availeth much."
There's real power in prayer and this nation needs all the help it can get, right? You're wanting to give credit where credit it due, so give all glory to Jesus who is the One who
most deserves it for all the good He has done before this nation tried to kick God out of everything.
God bless you. "-"
I worked briefly for the post office as a carrier. They can accept gifts $10 or under. Gift cards from your local grocery store are always a good idea. And a handwritten note saying you appreciate their hard work every day and wanted to say thanks, is all that needs to be said.
You are kind to think of them! That job is more stressful than people realize.
Deeli, I hate to disagree with you! Perhaps hubby and I were imprudent to joyfully receive and enjoy the homemade treats from his paper route folks a couple of years ago, but then, he did get to know them more than the usual paper carrier or mail carrier would. That's just his personality. These service personnel might also be diabetic. You wouldn't know unless you'd had some contact or conversation. Few people have or take the time to do that these days.
I do agree with LyndaGail to a point: other than whatever physical reward we want to give those who serve us, prayer is the best thing we can do. Jesus is coming soon even many who aren't professing Christians see the signs. They're just not interpreting them the same way.
