It never ceases to amaze me when I come up with a theme/idea to write about. I receive so many “signs” that tell me to just go with it. Today’s article is no exception.
It appears as though there is a Global/World/International Thank You Day. How interesting and awesome and how does one go about securing a unique date to celebrate a topic anyways? I would like to give a shout out to those who organize the related events, increase awareness and promote change. But I really want to be known for living a “thank you life”, for noticing and acknowledging people, and for encouraging others to live a “thank you life” as well. Yes, that’s what I really want and I hope you do too.
Thank you for:
Children who make us proud – grandchildren who keep us young
(Re)connecting with relatives & friends
Spouses/partners who complete us
Those who held our hand, lifted us up, carried us
Mothers, fathers, guardians and in-laws who inspire
Sisters and brothers and the fun memories of youth
Those who believe, those who challenge, those who encourage
Students, teachers, mentors, classmates
Friends who stay and keep in touch
Those who show up and those who go
All the cousins, aunts and uncles
Employers who lead, co-workers who help, staff who go above and beyond, customers and clients
The healers, the caregivers
Those who dream and share their dreams
Brothers and sisters-in-law and the nieces and nephews
Those who listen, those who help, those who give, those who are there
Grandparents who dance and win at cards

The amazing people who cross our paths with awesomeness
