A big complaint from many people is that no-one is noticing their efforts. Even the most hardened of people love it when someone acknowledges them.
When you write a sincere, heartfelt letter of appreciation or congratulations - not only do you build relationships with others you too benefit from feeling good for having taken the time to reach out to another.
Please note the letters below are only sample letters. I do not know your particular circumstances. Therefore, you should get legal or jurisdictional advice from your local practitioners prior to using.
