“We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.” John F. Kennedy
Generally speaking, two of the most important words in any language are “thank you.”
We live in a world often characterized by entitlement. While the youth are quickly identified by this thought, there needs to be consideration to where they learned it.
The age of entitlement influences everyone. We feel we have the right. After all, we are special, therefore entitled to receive. Others should want to give.
We could spend numerous posts discussing the topic and all the consequences of this mindset, but this is not the purpose of today’s thought.
The thought today is an exhortation to consider the people who make a difference in our lives and express appreciation.
Whether a parent, child, friend, teacher, coach, spiritual leader, or someone else, take a moment today to call, write a note, or go to them and thank them for the difference their influence has made in our lives.
We might be surprised at the difference it makes in their lives to do so.
