‘Tis the season for shopping, spending, wrapping, ripping open, returning and regifting. It’s a time of wondering what someone else might want or need and then making an effort to provide it. And it’s as good a time as any to say, “Thank you.”
Thank you. Two little words that really pack it in. Saying thank you lifts someone else up by recognizing that he or she invested time, energy or money to lift you up. But thank you is also humbling: it is an acknowledgement that you had a need, that you required or desired something and that someone else was in a position to give it to you.
