    • I would feel like crap...... So maybe you should give them a small gift when the baby is born.... Thank you notes, stamps, pens and an etiquette book.

    • Are you close with this person?  If so, then I would take her aside at some point, ask her if she liked what she received and then casually announce that you wondered if she did not have the time to thank you. I know it sounds brash, but honestly, some people need a kick in the pants.

      You are more than generous, Neicy!heart

    • Wow, you are very generous Neicy. I would feel upset too if I didn’t get a thank you. Some people don’t write thank you cards, but she should of at least acknowledged it and shown her appreciation verbally.

      So sad, some people are so rude. I like Vikki’s suggestion of an etiquette book to give to her.

    • Well dear its a prime example of what my dear Mom used to say, you can etell people who were raised in houses and th people who were raised in barns Manners.  Let it go, it is hurtful I know I had a simlar circumstance with a coworker a single Mom, I purchased gifts for her two children at Christmas. She stopped speaking to me period after the holidays. Forget about a thank you. But you know what, it did not destroy my intention to enrich the Christmas experience for her kids. That almost two years ago and she still has never uttered a word. In instances like this I take comfort in knowing God is watching. I try to make Him proud as my Father. Give it to the Him, go on then exhale, breathe in and feel wonderful. When we give from our heart, we are not responsible for how it is receved. Be Blessed Always

    • Neicy, I gave an elaborate baby shower along with  gifts  for a single young woman (family friend) many years ago.  I didn’t receive a thank you, verbal or written.  I didn’t even think about it until now.  I just knew that I did it from my heart and that it was needed to help this new baby have a wonderful start in life.

      When you know what you know, you just let the Lord lead you.  Your greatest reward comes from Him.  Your  blessings will always flow.  Keep doing good things for others.

      An act of kindness is a gift given
