Sadly, I believe hand written thank you notes for small occasions has become pretty much a thing of the past as electronic communications have taken over the universe. As email and texting are now most people's preferred means of communication, I think this is acceptable for most occasions. I would not ever send thank yous for Graduations, Weddings, etc via any electronic means. I believe these should still be handwritten, as should any that are going to grandparents and such out of respect.

However, as the thank you is sent at all says a lot about about the sender, that they are a gracious person and truly appreciated your thoughtfulness.

Myrabeth - I understand your problem completely. I still remember my third grade teacher telling me I was holding my pencil in the wrong hand and making me use my right hand- THIRD GRADE!!) I write everything in block print, all caps, just enlarging the first letters where capitalization is needed. My signature is good, but I practiced it hundreds of times to get it to the point where I liked it.

I do send thank you notes for gifts or when someone's put together a special dinner or evening, or if someone has gone out of their way to help me out.
I send an e-mail thank you when it's a casual dinner or get-together.

Re the cursive topic. I was taught cursive from Grade 1 (pencil until grade 3). I took very well to it because I'm right-handed and also artistic.
My brother, however, was born left-handed but was forced to use his right hand to write. This resulted with him being extremelly frustrated and getting poor grades in handwriting (like you, Myrabeth!). To this day his writing is poor (he's 42). So I can understand the frustration, however, I would be sad to see cursive writting go away as I find it beautiful.
This said, I find it horrible that children would be forced into writing with their right hand when they are clearly left-handed. (In my day, the nun's told us that it was a sign of the devil to be right-handed. Can you imagine! That is so wrong!)
