Today, I reached out to three amazing women I am blessed to know in my life. I let them each know how even though life moves us away from each other some times, we still always live on in each others' hearts.
I told them about all the things I love about them, what their special gifts are, how they touched my life, and that I'll always treasure them, near or far.
Beautiful words are just such a gift... expressing gratitude, love, connection - what could be better! I hope they each in turn do the same with friendships of their own that may need rekindling. I'm so grateful and blessed they crossed my path in life.
Today I got in touch with my go-to I.T. guy. He is part of our Executive Support team at my office.
I typically instant message him in the office when something has gone wrong, or my boss has locked out his password, or we need some urgent thing fixed. He always springs to action, coming to the rescue and helping us right away.
Today, I messaged him and said, "Hi! I don't need anything today but wanted to thank you for all you always do."
He was so happy! He said, "Nobody ever does that!" He said it made his afternoon!
How long did that take me? No time at all. And it didn't cost a thing!
Thank yous are free - but they are priceless! Imagine if people you knew just thanked you for the little things in life. You'd be getting such nice messages all day!
