All of us carry a bag of words which we use to express our thoughts and feelings. Some of the words are used more frequently while others are used rarely if ever. When someone says or does something nice we often reach into our bag and casually toss out the words, “Thank you.” Many of us use the words so often that we rarely pause to think about the value of these words. Some have become so distracted that an act of kindness isn’t even noticed or valued, so no words are expressed. Some people struggle with expressing thanks while others find it fairly easy. As a kid I was taught to say “thank you” when someone does something nice for you, but saying “thank you” can also have an impact on you if you pause long enough to let it.
