Expressions of Gratitude

While on vacation in Cape May, NJ this past summer, we found our way into a crowded ice cream parlor. As I stood to the side while Ken and Maria waited in line, I watched a woman with her 4-year-old grandson. The boy hurried towards her showing her the ice cream cone that his grandfather had just handed to him. The boy was so excited and she bent over to look him in the eyes and said, “Go ahead, taste it. Is it good?” “Oh yes!” the boy exclaimed. “Okay then, go quickly and tell grandpa, ‘thank you!'”

The boy scampered back to the older man, who was paying at the counter, and gave his grandfather a big “thank you!” The older man’s face lit up. I smiled as the grandmother stood up and she turned to me saying, “We must teach them while they are young to show gratitude. It is very important.” I smiled and nodded in agreement. This Thanksgiving issue seems like a fitting place to share her message.

Wishing you healing, hope, and joy this month! And we THANK YOU for reading and sharing our ezine with others, and for your ongoing support by purchasing our e-courses and e-books!

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright
    infringement? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either
    written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is
    popping it up all over the internet without
    my agreement. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    show the same outcome.
