You don’t have to shell out any extra dollars to send a thank you note. A thank you note is sent for various reasons. Let us take a closer look at the types of thank you note you can send.
Wordings definitely change in a thank you card or note depending on the purpose. For instance, you have received a number of gifts from friends and relatives. It is not always possible to reply to each and every one. However, you can at least send an acknowledgment to the ones who are close to you.

If you have received a piece of jewelry for your wedding, your thank you note can have wordings like

Remember when you are in distress or in grief, the right set of words may not come to you. So, you can seek help of another member in the family. Say that you appreciate and you are grateful for the assistance you have received in time of need. In fact, it is very difficult to send a thank you card to everyone who attended the funeral.

Your wordings can include
"I extend my gratitude to you and thank you earnestly for helping me tide over the unfavorable time and help me by babysitting my daughter/son. Had it not been for you, it would be difficult to take care of the kids during this hectic period".
