… saying thanks with ‘peelings’.
A little boy wanted 100 dollars badly and prayed for two weeks but nothing happened. Then he decided to write a letter to the Lord requesting the money. When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to the Lord, they decided to send it to the President
The President was so impressed, touched, and amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a 10 dollar bill. The President thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.
The little boy was delighted with the money and sat down to write a thank-you note to the Lord, which read:
Dear Lord, Thank you very much for sending me the money. However, I noticed that for some reason you had to send it through Washington, and as usual, those jerks deducted 90%. Love, Tommy
… a grateful heart!
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.
