We all have times when we're at a loss for words, and times when only the perfect words will do.  But who knows what the perfect words are?  Sandra Lamb does. If you've ever sat down to write a note of condolence, congratulations, announce good or bad news, or any other personal or business note and found yourself at a loss for words; this book is for you. The author begins by helping you get organized to write greeting cards, then covers happy occasions like birthdays and congratulatory notes, holiday, religious, social, condolence and all the usual personal note occasions, as you would expect. But then, she increases the value of this special little volume by covering relationship building, business, and even natural disasters. Every section includes the basics of what to cover, suggestions for what to write and even quotes from the wise and famous, with which to enrich your writing. The suggestions are useable even for e-mail and text messages, although the book stresses the importance of a personal note for special occasions and people in your life.

Wherever you write, at home or at the office, your writing equipment should include a copy of this book.  You'll find yourself turning to it again and again.
