It means the same today as it did all those many years ago. Have you remembered someone and he or she didn't remember you with an acknowl- edgement? Read and enjoy. It doesn't matter how many new ideas we have, or how many computers we use, good manners should never change. Remembering people with good deeds, saying, 'Thank you,' when someone takes the time to remember, and being kind to others, should always be a part of our lives. Being friendly to others and using the words, 'Thank you,' more every day should be the only change in good manners. This is the season for graduations, weddings, and showers. It is a time of happiness and a time for sending invitations to tell the good news. Lots of invitations will be sent to families, relatives, and friends. Those receiving them will express their appreciatioli by sending gifts to the graduates, and brides- to-be. Lots of gifts will be bought. Time will be spent picking the appropriate gift for the occasion. Each gift will be wrapped, packed, and sent so that it will be received on a special day. Lots of these gifts will never be acknowledged. The sender won't know if the gift was received, and will never be thanked for taking time to send it. I believe if a person has the time to send invitations, he should take the time to acknowledge the reply whether it be a gift or a card of congratulations. The excuse, "I didn't know I was supposed to send a thank you note," is ridiculous. A person should have found oul how to say thank you the same way he learned to send invitations. Never should the gift be ignored because the receiver didn't like it. The sender didn't have to send anything. Most people don'tcare whether they receive a hand-written note when they send a gift, but they would like to know it was received. This is especially true when gifts are sent from the stores where they were purchased. A couple of years ago, I sent a gift to a neighbor, which was sent by the store. When the gift wasn't acknowledged, I wondered if the store sent it. Later, I saw the neighbor in another store. She said she would have acknowledged the gift, but she didn't know my address... Good manners are still in style for those of us who fail to acknowledge invitations to parties, showers or luncheons. If the invitation denotes a reply is needed, we should by all means let the host or hostess know if we will attend. Your answer will save someone a lot of work and expense. If you have been asked to help out in any way, or you have a part on the program, please let the host or hostess know if you will attend. Don't be surprised if you arrive at a place sometime and find the host or hostess has made other plans when you failed to acknowledge an invitation - whether this be a red-hot story or just a get together. The season for graduations, wedffmgs, and parties is in full swing. This is a happy time. If you are one of those who will be honored with gifts and invitations, remember the words, 'Thank you', are a must and will never go out of style.
