Silent geratitude isn’t much uses to anyone.

Gertrude Stein

Day 2 - say thank you

Showing gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful things humans can do for each other.

Randy Pausch

If you are thankful for someone, I would encourage you to share your gradotide with them.  How will they know how much they are appreciated if we don’t tell them.   A thank you note could have more impact than telling them verbally or with a text message.  If you do not send a thank you note then at least tell them in person.

The most important part of gratitude is that it spurs action.  It compels us to ex press our gratitude in a way that makes a difference  in someone else’s life.

It makes a huge difference when we let people know when they’v helped us, taught us that missing piece of the puzzle in the project we are working on you know the one pice we needed to complete what we were trying to oo.

We need go let them know when they made us smile with their humor or when they made our day and especially  when they are just a delight to have as friend, because we know we can count on them.  Saying Thank you matters, big time, especially to the recipient.

We need to take a moment to let others known how grateful we are to have them in our lives .Don’t woit, it might be too late.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, it matters to me.  

Appreciation can make a day - even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.

Always tell those you love just how much they mean to you.

Once you hear someone sincerely thank you for some 'small' favor, you realize how important it is to do the same to anyone else. YES this is the Thankful month....
Love from over and down here.

Years ago I remember a co-worker was struggling ... reluctant to visit a friend who was dying. "I don't know what to say!" I loved what another colleague suggested he say: "Thank you for having made a difference in my life."
I've never forgotten that.

Always. The days go by too quickly, and the people go as well.

So true we don't know how many days we have left to live so good advice to let people we know/love how much we appreciate them and how much we love them!
