Thirty Days of Giving Thanks!

I think we are often grateful for people in our lives. One person can make quite the difference and not even realize the impact they have made. For a while now, I’ve been thinking about thanking some of the people who have made an impact in my life. A simple e-mail or a written thank you note can express how we feel and let that person know that they made a difference.

A Free Spirit Life is hosting Thirty Days of Giving Thanks. While I can’t say that I am writing a person a day, the idea was enough to finally get me started on my idea of sending thank you notes.

The result has been surprising. Most people had no idea of a small act of their own had greatly affected me. I was surprised at how much I had affected them. My thank yous have received their own thank yous  – not only for letting the person know about their impact but also for the impact I have made on that person’s life.

We often feel gratitude for the actions of others, but I think that we don’t express that nearly often enough. Thank you to all who have made a positive experience in my life and to those who provided opportunities for me to grow.
