Word of the Week: Thanks

I received a truly thoughtful gift from a customer today. She said she "just wanted to say thank you." I realize how many opportunities I have to show appreciation for my friends, family, and the people I work with, and though I do try to do it, I don't express it enough. What a perfect time of year to say an extra thanks!

Thank you! Yes, you! You know who you are! Thanks for stopping by here to read my ramblings. Thanks for your comments, your feedback, the emailed responses when you don't feel comfortable sharing here. Thanks for letting me know that you're out there. It sometimes feels weird writing here if I think no one is hearing. So thank you.

"I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks." ~William Shakespeare

"If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is 'thank you', it will be enough." ~ Meister Eckhart

"I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder." ~ G.K. Chesterton
