Did You Say ‘Thank You’?

And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, – – – and be thankful. Colossians 3:15

Do you have an Attitude of Gratitude? November is a great month for us to look at our attitude and our actions as they relate to thank you. When I was a small boy I was taught to always express my gratitude.

Mother would always ask me when someone had done something for me, ‘Did you say thank you?’ I believe it was a measure of goodness to my mother.

When you begin to measure what you like about people an attitude of gratitude will be on your list. I have worked with people who did not know the word, ‘thank you’ and some of them have had a lot of lovely qualities but without gratitude they always came across stiff, selfish, and unreasonable. Gratitude like love can cover a multitude of wrongs. When what you do is appreciated and people say so it really makes a difference. Your heart is warmer, your feelings glow, and your gratitude begins to show. Remember that gratitude without expression is not gratitude at all.

Work to see how many people you can say ‘thank you’ to today. It just might make others smile and you nicer.
