Gratitude is “the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.” Lately, I’ve been trying to be more intentional about my gratitude. Taking a minute and writing out that thank you note. Picking up a small “thank you” gift. Even just picking up the phone and saying “thank you.”
It’s so easy to be “thankful” while never expressing such and letting someone know how much you appreciate them or what they’ve done for or given you. At times in my life, I’ve had lists of people I needed to thank for one thing or another, but the list would get lost, and I’d forget. Setting aside that time to think of others and show them you’ve been thinking of them is an incredible blessing.
With that said, the above items make a simple way to say thank you to the girls I stay with when I visit VA/DC. A handmade [and thrifted, of course] sugar and creamer set, some caramels (for melting & dipping apples), and a few small white pumpkins. I hope the girls sit down for an Autumn afternoon tea as a result of this little gift. It would make me smile.
A thank you doesn’t have to be expensive and it doesn’t have to be complicated. What’s your favorite way to say “thank you”?
