We’re prioritizing giving thanks this month by listing ten simple ways that we can show thanks. Were you able to practice our first action of thanks by writing someone a thank you note?
The second idea on my list is closely related.
This is harder for me than writing a thank you note. In a note, I can plan out my exact words and not have the involvement of face-to-face interaction.
But today, let’s verbally thank someone for what they do. Here are a few suggestions.
- When you pick your child up from school, thank the teacher for his/her work in the classroom.
- Thank the cashier at the grocery store or the waitress at the restaurant for her service.
- Take time to thank your child for something they did – obeying quickly, having good manners, helping a sibling, etc.
- Thank your husband for the work he does to support your family.
- Speak your appreciation to a co-worker for what they do on the job.
In fact – you could even thank more than one person!! Your words could be just the encouragement someone needs.
Do you have a person in mind to thank today?
