    Thank You Very Much

      Yesterday, Scott handed me a folded up piece of notebook paper to read.  It was a note from one of the Boy Scouts in his troop…a thank-you note from a 13 year-old young man that was unexpected and really sweet.  It spoke of his appreciation for all that my husband had done: the camp-outs, the activities, their tradition of stopping at In-and-Out on their way home from overnighters.  My husband is not a man of many words, but I could tell that this burst of appreciation was very well received. In my never-ending job of cleaning my workspace, I came across a note that a friend had written me, shortly before she passed away.  It wasn’t long…just a quick thank you for something small I had done.  But this note serves as a tangible reminder of our relationship.  We hadn’t known each other long, but I am reminded of her sweet personality and the spirit around her by that small card.  I don’t think she had any idea of the impact that card would make. It got me to thinking about the importance of showing gratitude.  I am blessed to be surrounded by very kind, thoughtful people.  I don’t THINK I need praise for a job well done, but it does make you feel good when someone shares their gratitude, when YOU know that THEY notice what you’ve done.  I’m not saying

Home...where you can always find warm words on a cold day.
