Take A Moment To Say “Thank You”

My heart is heavy on the passing of Congressman Elijah E Cummings. He was a strong and loud voice for the great city of Baltimore.  He always made time for his constituents and always had a kind word. Every time I saw him, he always had a smile on his face and was authentic. I remember more than a decade ago, he resolved a problem instantly that had been an issue for many years. I remember many years later, I ran into him in the supermarket. I took a moment to thank him for his service and for especially solving that problem. He was as usual so kind and welcoming. His disposition was always a sunny and bright one. I am grieving with the rest of our city, the State of Maryland and our nation. Please uphold his family in prayer during this difficult time of grief.

I am reminded on a day like today on the importance of saying thank you. We think we have forever to say thank you. I would highly recommend that you take a moment to say thank you. I know someone may be doing something for you because that is their job but we need to show our gratitude.  It can be a coworker or when we go to a place of business. We also need to show gratitude to the people the closest to us. Yes, they love us unconditionally and we love them also but we need to say thank you.

We should never take people for granted. We want people to know that we love and adore them now.  I would ask you to take a moment and tell at least three people thank you today. It could be through a text, an email, a phone call, a surprise gift or another way.  Whatever you decide to do, please do it soon. Sometimes, saying thank you maybe the thing that brightens someone’s day. You also will be encouraging someone else with two small words: Thank You.  I thank you for being one of my devoted readers. I am honored to have a small part of your day. Thank you for trusting me with your time. I am grateful and will never take you for granted. Thank you!
