On the face of it, thank you seems like such a simple expression - in reality those two little words combine to make one of the most powerful and meaningful phrases in the English language. I have always believed that saying thank you can open the doors of opportunity, grow relationships and make both donor and recipient feel good.
I don't pretend to be perfect, or 'holier than thou' but I do try to say thank you when someone helps me or treats me well. I believe that the little daily kindnesses those around us do all deserve to be recognised with a thank you. Think of the person who held a door open for you today, offered advice or a recommendation or greeted you with a cheery smile and packed your groceries for you at the supermarket. I like to pay it forward and I always try to say thank you to others for those kindnesses. When I say thank you, I believe it shows people that I care and that it shows good manners. The thank you habit was drilled into me by my parents and it's one habit that I am proud to be passing on to the next generation too. I know I'm not the only person who is offended when people around me forget this simple courtesy.
Of course, there are many ways of expressing gratitude. The simple, immediate verbal thank you is one way of giving thanks, the handwritten thank you note another. But we can also show our appreciation through our actions - lending a hand or helping others is equally valued. Time seems to be such a scarce commodity for so many people these days - no one seems to have enough of it! So what could be nicer than to offer a little bit of your time to others. In my experience, it becomes a very reciprocal arrangement - a virtual circle of appreciation that makes everyone feel good and valued.
I am thankful for all my blessings, the most important of which are my family and friends, my faith, my community and my health. I always take the time thank my family and friends. They are my rocks. They are always there for me whenever I need them. I know I can trust them implicitly, and whenever I need their support, they will be right there to help me without question or judgement. Collectively, they have shaped me into the person I am today! I thank God for blessing me with such a wonderful family. A thank you can make a person's day, forgetting one leaves an impression too. Which impression do you want to leave behind?
