Every day, be sure to tell somebody thank you.

December 17th - make life better by saying Thank You.

God gave you a gift of 84,600 seconds today.  Have you used one of them to say thank you?

William Arthur Ward

We often forget to take the time just to be kind and say thank you.  But we never know just how much time we’ll have so the best time to say thank you is now, not later.

Saying thank you is an everyday courtesy that takes just a moment.  It costs nothing, not even effort. But its one of nicest things we can say.

Saying thank you might be simple but it means a lot.  It shows how greatful you are for the  words, gifts or kindnesses.

I’d like to express my thanks to all of you that leave a message  just to say hi, or to comment on my journal.  These days of solitary confinement are very hard on me and it helps to know someone has taken  the time to read what I have to say.  You re appreciated more than you can possibly know.

Make it a habit to tell people thank you.  To express appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you and youll soon find many others around you.  Truly appreciate life, and youll find you have more of it.

Ralph Marston

Blogging is the closet thing I have to a social life these days, and it really does help us to not feel so alone. So I'll say a big thank you to you too for always stopping by with a comment and always providing us with positive messages here too!

It is true that sometimes it seems blogging is our only connection with the outside world. You always post such positive things on your blog and they are common sense rules of life. I hope you have a wonderful day- xo Diana
