Thank You Notes News #2
Appreciation For Our Writers
Dear Lovely Readers and Writers,
It is with so much joy that I write to you today. It is our second week at Thank You Notes! What a thrill it has been to add writers, receive and publish beautiful stories and poems.
I feel like the luckiest person of all in this space of appreciation and co-creation. It feels like family here at Thank You Notes, and we experience all of the love in our hearts.
It has been so much fun to receive submissions for our first prompt already. We are working on stories, articles, and poems until May 31st, 2021, for the prompt:
Thank You Note To A Teacher
We also always have the following sections as ongoing prompts for you to explore:
Notes: These can be photos and stories of handwritten or digital thank you notes you have received that have touched your heart. They can also be ones that you decided to write to others.
Universe: These stories or poems give appreciation to our universe, galaxy, stars, and space.
Spiritual: These stories or poems thank a higher power in our lives. We may thank life, the universe, the spirit, or God for what we have been given in our lives.
Poetry: This category features poems written to say thank you in a variety of ways. Poetry may cross over into other sections as well.
Humanity: This category spotlights people we want to thank from our past, present, and future. They can be people in our lives or people we imagine. There are so many beautiful humans out there touching our lives and helping us. Stories and poems here focus on appreciating others.
Earth: This category focuses on Mother Earth and nature. We are thankful to the Earth for the gifts we are given of air, water, and sunlight every day. Stories and poems featured here give thanks to our home planet.
Food: This category features appreciation for the food and drinks we are gifted daily to nourish us. I welcome thank you poems or stories about food that are appreciative in nature. You can write about and share recipes, especially ones handed down through your family, for which you are very grateful.
We have welcomed several new writers over the past week, and today we can also celebrate these beautiful submissions to Thank You Notes.
I invite you to support these writers on their journeys as we all work together towards a positive world of appreciation.
