“Life is short, but there is always time enough for courtesy.”
It’a small courtesy that too often is lost in our fast-paced society and one that can make a big difference in the lives of loved ones and strangers alike.
When it comes from the heart ‘thank you’ means so much. It means ‘thank you for taking the time to show that you care.’ It means ‘You really made my day.’ Thank you simply says, “I notice, I understand, I acknowledge.’
These two simple words will strengthen your relationships, open doors of opportunity and help you appreciate the blessings in your life.
Children these days sure grow up differently from how we were raised.
“I was RAISED!! I didn’t just grow up. I was taught to speak when I enter a room, say please & thank you, to have respect for my elders, to get off my lazy butt and let the elder in the room have my chair, say yes sir and no sir, lend a helping hand to those in need, hold the door to the person behind me, say excuse me when it’s needed, and to love people for who they are, not for what I can get from them! I was also taught to treat people the way I want to be treated! If you were raised this way too, repost this. Sadly, many won’t because they weren’t, and it shows!!” – Author unknown
