Does anyone know of a nice text to write on a thank you note not to long and maybe with a short and sweet brocho at the end?November 24, 2010 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #712351
Ideally, every letter of thanks should be personalized for the recipient, although these days with literacy and manners both at abysmally low levels, I suppose I should be grateful to receive anything.
I am still waiting for a response to a wedding gift I sent–in 2008!November 24, 2010 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #712352
Can you give more details?
If not, how about “yehi ratzon seyemalie Hashem kol mishalos libchem l’tovah”?November 24, 2010 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #712353
Brachos should flow from the heart and shouldn’t be pre-packaged. Any honest and meaningful comment would be appreciated.November 24, 2010 8:51 pm at 8:51 pm #712354
Just want to give my parents a nice gift when i come home for my wedding, and for my family in israel who made me feel so at home while i was there, so i want to write a nice thank you note for both my parents and other family.November 24, 2010 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #712355

Before my chasuna I sat down and wrote a beautiful note to both myy parents. They both appreciated it tremendously. Words from the heart are always more appreciated!
A beautiful thing indeed. I learnt that tears can be seen on adult men too! (Though not the first time!)November 24, 2010 10:23 pm at 10:23 pm #712357
Mazel Tov, Tuna! From your previous posts, I thought you were already married. Welcome to the club!November 24, 2010 10:42 pm at 10:42 pm #712358
Dear Uncle Homeowner.
my husband joins me in thanking you for that beautiful gift you gave us the occasion of our wedding back in 2008.
what with all the wrapping paper, toiveling all the gifts, setting up house and then getting pregnant and having triplets, it took time to get around to writing this letter and i do apologize for the delay.
may we merit to always share in each others simchos and i want to assure you that next time you give us a gift, you wont wait three and a half years for the thank you note. i know it caused you great distress to wait for this note.
with great love,
your niece and nephew,
tikvah and moishe.
p.s. we had triplets two months ago, i am not sure if you got around to sending us a gift……November 24, 2010 10:49 pm at 10:49 pm #712359
hey, mazel tov. you know your parents best so u can answer that question best!November 24, 2010 11:27 pm at 11:27 pm #712360
tzvideer- what makes you think homeowner is a male?November 25, 2010 1:54 am at 1:54 am #712361
Thank you so much for the beautiful (generous) and thoughtful whatever-it-is that you gave me on the occasion of whatever.(If a gifty-gift) I am sure it will grace my table (house) for many years to come, and I will always think of you when I use it. (If a cash gift – I am saving for a new couch, sefer, computer, etc. and your gift will enable me to reach my goal that much sooner.)
Most especially, I want to thank you for sharing in our simcha. B”EH, we should be zochim to be m’shaleim lachem k’gmulchem hatov.November 25, 2010 2:28 am at 2:28 am #712362
Tzvideer, ha ha.
blueberrymuffin, what makes you think I’m not a man? And what difference would it make anyway? The issue is manners in writing letters.November 25, 2010 4:35 am at 4:35 am #712363
My daughter also wrote my husband and me each a truly moving and beautiful letter of her tremendous hakoras hatov for our raising her, and for all that we had done for her all her life and in bringing her to her chuppah. it was filled with love, and is making me tear up even as I write about it.November 25, 2010 4:49 am at 4:49 am #712364
Tunabeigel- do what you want. But I would say to write words from your heart to your parents. Skip the rhymes. Rather write them a nice letter. It’s so much warmer.
Mazel Tov and in a Mazel’dig Shaah!!November 25, 2010 5:03 am at 5:03 am #712365

Thats beautiful! When did she give it to you? At the wedding?November 25, 2010 12:00 pm at 12:00 pm #712366
I wrote a beautiful letter to my parents too. I sneaked it into their bedroom with a gift attached, the night before my wedding, and left it on the dresser for them to find.
It’s a beautiful way to express appreciation.
Some of my friends had a family member/friend put a letter and gift on the table in her parents home, while the family was already by the wedding. The found it when they came home. What a beautiful way to end a simcha!November 25, 2010 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #712367
I’m just not used to writing letters, i suppose i didn’t really take english seriously when i was in school, (anyway things like writing letters come more natural by a woman) i just need basic ideas what to write and how to write it.November 25, 2010 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #712368
Tuna: “things like writing letters come more natural by a woman”
I don’t think that Leon Uris or William Shakespeare would have appreciated that statement.November 25, 2010 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #712369

There is just so much wrong with this paragraph it’s difficult to know where to start.
Tuna, it’s never too late to learn. If you want to do anything in this world, you’ll need a command of the English language. It doesn’t have to be at the level of the great authors but it should at least meet high school standards.November 25, 2010 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm #712370
you could write something like,thanks for giving me a beautiful childhood and a warm and cozy home,(even when i was away from home)and now parents sit back and enjoy the next stage in life-iyh “grandparents”.bashah tova.November 25, 2010 7:31 pm at 7:31 pm #712371
Here’s your first assignment: examine the corrected version of your paragraph below with the original and figure out the errors made.

how about we give tuna ideas what to write about, and stop worrying about everything else!November 25, 2010 9:07 pm at 9:07 pm #712373
I’ve been out of high school for a few years already, I haven’t been studying English for some time so you guys can’t really blame me.
