Only One Word/Phrase

If you suddenly woke up tomorrow and had lost all your vocabulary, what is the one word--actually phrase--you'd be grateful to remember? I'd say it is "Thank you." This is a powerful word. Practice it daily to others and to yourself.

Thank you has way more meaning than any single word, symbol or gesture. A heartfelt "Thank you" goes to the heart right away. It lets people know they are appreciated in a world that moves too fast and often too unpredictably. It validates and soothes. It it the verbal pat on the back for a job well done. "Thank you" is the holy grail of all words. Use it and mean it.

Have you said "Thank you" today? Thank YOU for reading my blog! :-))

  1. Thanks for the reminder :D Very true. I think that it is one of the most important manners to teach childeren as well... Sure at first it'll just be a verbal responce... but I believe that just saying it often enough can help kids understand what it means to be grateful.

  3. Dear Kelly,
    Thank you for this lovely reminder. Yes, I have said thank you today ;)
    It's true: this is such a powerful phrase. It can take you far. I remember as a child my father always reminding me of two words: please and thank you.
