Since it’s November, the month of Thanksgiving, I have thought of 15 ways to give thanks – whether it is to someone who has been good to you or ways to be good to yourself.
- Send flowers to someone to let them know you are grateful for being in your life.
- Send a handwritten note on stationery. It shows you took time out of your day to say thank you.
- Take them to lunch or dinner. Sit down with them and spend time to show you are appreciative.
- Buy a small but thoughtful gift that means something to that person – a book by their favorite author, a brooch, or gourmet treats for their pet.
- Visit that person, look them in the eyes and tell them thank you.
- Give a contribution to the person’s favorite charity.
- Hand bake some cookies, a pie or a cake and hand deliver it to the person.
- Make some preserves and buy some breakfast bread and take them to the individuals.
- Speak up on a public platform and tell those who need to know how helpful the person has been, For instance, if a co-worker has helped you in some way, be sure to sing his/her praises to the manager.
- There is nothing at all wrong with a hug and a simple thank – you.
- If the person is elderly, take them on an errand – i.e. if the person doesn’t drive, take them grocery shopping or to mail packages.
- Send a sincere and heartfelt shout out on social media for all of his/her friends can see how generous this person was to you.
- Remember that your circumstances could always be worse – so be grateful.
- Recognize the family members and friends who are always there for you – appreciate that they are in your life and show them as much as possible.
- Pray and give thanks.
Have a great weekend. Thank you for always supporting me.
