Say thank you.

Monday November 12, 2012



The countdown to Thanksgiving has begun.


How will you show gratitude today?


Find someone who:
  • Helps without being asked. What a great model!
  • Needs a hug. Someone in need prompts me to value my own blessings.
  • Is “just doing their job,” and gets no recognition. She needs to feel valued.
  • Is battling something. He helps me put my struggles in perspective.
  • Just blesses you by being there. This person sometimes isn’t even aware what a blessing she is. Tell her!
  • Has served our country. On this day after Veteran’s Day, let a veteran know how much he or she is appreciated. And tell them about Golden Corral’s Military Appreciation Monday, where every veteran receives a free dinner. More information here.
Here’s your—and my—chance to show gratitude today, and bless someone in the process.
I'm linking up with Laura, Jen, and Michelle today.

GReat reminders, Laura. Sometimes all we have to do is look someone in the eyes, recognize them and smile at them. Can do wonders to encourage someone and give them acceptance and love.

Great assignment, Laura! So practical and I'm sure we'll end up the ones blessed for having taken it up!

Now I'm looking around to see who I can say thank you to. Thanks, Laura. You are always such a positive spot to visit!

I just got a new set of encouragement postcards, and this post inspires me to send one to a person who is just doing her job but gets no recognition. Thanks for the inspiration!
