I know you have all been there before. You spend a lot of time making or picking out a lovely gift. You package it beautifully (or not so much). You ship it away or hand it over. Then you never hear back from the recipient. Or a thank you letter shows up in the mail months later. It's not that you expect something in return, except gratitude. There's that word again! You just want some acknowledgement for the efforts you went through. Totally understandable from my point of view.
So why do some people have a problem with saying thank you? Do they not realize they don't say it? I wish someone could explain this to me.
You may not agree, but a great remedy to that is to just stop giving. Stop with gifts stop with helping, stop complimenting, stop, stop, stop! But then what kind of person does that turn you into? What kind of society does that create?
We are so fortunate to have what we do. So many other's in this world are not as fortunate. So today I will be grateful for what I have. For loving family and friends, the sun, the beautiful weather, my cats, my garden and my new business that is thriving! I am thankful for all of you reading this!
Do you know somebody who needs a few hints dropped? Share this on facebook and maybe they will get the message. ;) I would love to hear your thoughts and insight.
