It seems that the faster the pace in the world around us, the more we lose touch with one and other. We are usually so busy scampering from this task to that that we often forget to make real connections with one and other, life just keeps zooming by at warp speed. The pleasantries of social interactions often get lost in the shuffle and a quick text is the extent of our communications.

You blink and you realize that it has now been 2 weeks since your child’s birthday and they have not yet given a moment’s thought to sending Thank You notes out for the gifts they received. Or, your child is invited to a formal event and is not sure how to dress. Maybe, your young man is unsure of what will be expected of him when he meets a young lady’s family for the first time.
There are some basic etiquette tips that we may have forgotten to go over with our children, until the time comes that they are seated at a formal dinner. Then we find that there are multiple forks and they are unsure which one to use, let alone where they should put the cloth napkin when they step away from the table.
Maybe you have a creative child who has a way with words. What better way to encourage etiquette and creativity than to have your child draft up their own words for a greeting card poem they can mail out?

I would use it to help my husband pay for repairs on our car. We only have 1 car & it decided to need a new starter this week. Not a great time of year for it to happen!
