For some reason, I have a hard time remembering to say "thank you." I think about it all the time; I appreciate what people do, really; but I know that I don't say "thank you" out loud enough. (Some people even remind me of this fact on a regular basis.) I forget to send cards when they should be sent. And I don't always remember anniversaries when they come around.
A friend of mine wakes up every morning and thinks of a "word for the day." I think I'm going to create a word for the rest of 2007 for myself - THANKS! I'll hang the word above my desk, make it my computer's screen saver, and stop to think about it every morning before I start my day. Maybe I can do better ... I sure hope so. Because there is so much to be thankful for, and there are so many people who make my life better every day.
Thanks for reading my post!
