It's the thought that counts.

Recently, many people did kind things for my family during a difficult time, and we want to thank them with a note. Should be easy, right? Well it is, but that doesn't mean that my sisters and I didn't have a discussion about it first. It seems in this day and age, none of us uses handwriting for more than making a quick list or jotting down a phone number, and the quality of our penmanship has declined quite a bit--meaning any piece of correspondence can be sloppy and full of mistakes despite our best efforts. We thought of many different ways to combat this problem, that we may use, but decided in the end not to worry about it. This really is a case where it is the thought that counts.

Have you found that your handwriting has declined over the years with increased use of keyboarding?
