Crap! I need help with writing a thank yo note

My husband ex wife sent us a shadow box frame with a picture from our wedding along with a few trinkets and a long letter to me.

The letter was sweet though I truly don't know if it's sincere or if she has something planned. She's done some pretty shitty things like tell my husband she was happy we miscarried.

Sooooo send her a thank you card and what the hell do I say??? Or send her a text and again what do I say?

I don't like her and probably never will but I need to be nice for the sake of the kids and the peace.

So help me CM. I'm always great about knowing what to say to thank someone for a gift but it's never been to someone I loath so what do I say??

"Thank you for the thoughtful gift, it made my day" I'd just send a text.

DO NOT SEND A TEXT. Just write, "Thank you for the lovely gift and for thinking of us on our special day."

Just send  a simple "thank you for the shadow box, it was nice of you to take the time to think of us"  No need to write a novel to her, just a simple note is all.

A plain 'Thank You' kind of card.

Message: "Thank you for thinking of us. The shadow box was a thoughtful gift!

Sincerely,

Mr and Mrs OP"

That's it. You're being civil without gushing. Someone who is glad I miscarried will not get much more than basic civility out of me.

This except I'd put it in a thank you card.
