National Thank You Day

I honestly think the art of simply saying thank you is gone.   We replace thank you with that’s what someone should do.   Regardless of a person’s role in your life removing a thank you is definitely taking advantage of another person.

Saying thank you should make you feel good just as hearing it does.   Take a second to thank someone today.   Don’t take for granted people’s presence in your life.   National thank you day should be an everyday thing but it starts on the inside first.
