What is free, doesn’t take much effort and has a huge reward? Giving Thanks.
When I was younger and would return home from playing at a friend’s house, my mom would always ask if we thanked his/her parents. I forgot those simple words one time and had to call her parents to thank them for letting me play! I have always been a big thanker but I have recently realized the power of a simple hand written thank you note, a quick email to report great service or just a spoken thank you for a small gesture.
I have decided to take one hour a week to thank people. New friend, old friend, random person, whoever – you never know how it might come back around.
