My mother taught me the importance of saying thank you to others. Not just to friends and family, but bus drivers and waiters and anyone else who deserves a little recognition as well. Don't we all?
Another of the many things I admire about Obama, is that it seems his mother must have taught him the importance and weight of a "thank you" as well. He says it often and with feeling. Have you noticed that?
I give thanks today and every day for how lucky I am to love and be loved by so many wonderful friends and family. "What a long strange trip it's been!"
