Giving Thanks

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!"

Nice post. I'll never forget someone telling me about thanking prayers - the idea was that usually the concept of prayer is about asking for something (help, guidance, winning lotto,) not reflecting back on what you already have.

Simple thank you's - it doesn't take much to make the world a better place.
