I was jolted with a ah-ha moment kind of smile when I read the following quote from "The Help" and I'm glad to know I saved it in my clippings on the Kindle. It reads...
"Saying thank you, when you really mean it, when you remember what someone done for you"---she shakes her head, stares down at the scrated table---"it's so good."
Before week's end, I have promised myself to write a quick appreciative note (or a simple mention in person) to a few of those people in my life....the bikram welcome receptionist...our apartment building's doormen....the parking garage attendant who gets my car everyday....the cashier at Trader Joes whom I always seem to get when checking out. Perhaps in some way, it makes me feel better saying a real hearty thank you because they without a doubt do make my day a bit easier, a bit brighter.
I mean, Oprah always said that every person in this world just wants to be heard. To be validated. And to have what they say and do matter to someone. AMEN SISTER OPRAH.
Say your please & thank yous this week :)
