A recent topic here got me to thinking. I have always been pretty good about writing thank you notes. What I finally realized, however, is that even though I moved out of my parent's house over a decade ago, they have NEVER written me a thank you note. Never. Not one. Not for any gift. They've received many store-bought gifts, but also countless cross-stitched pieces, crocheted afghans, and now a quilt.
What do you guys think? Is it appropriate for a mother to write thank you notes to her children once they are grown and leave the nest? I think so, but I would like to hear your thoughts on this.
