T is for Thank You - #AtoZChallenge

Today's word is Thank You...

At times the art of saying thank you is a dying art. To me the importance of instilling the politeness of saying thank you from the onset in raising children is imperative to an appreciative society. It shocks me when some people don’t offer the common courtesy of a thank you… when someone holds a door open for you, lets you cut the line or when the waitress takes your order and brings you your food. A simple thank you, will certainly brighten someone’s day and create the ripple effect of appreciation. Go ahead, I dare you, to pay attention how many times you say thank you in a day and if it’s returned to you or not.

I’d enjoying hearing about the numbers you count thank you in a day. Thanks for visiting!
