Two words. Eight letters. Thank you. November is the month for the special time of Thanksgiving. Many people grew up learning about Pilgrims, the Mayflower, and of course the big turkey at the center of tables. Thanksgiving has always been a family celebration in my family with smiles and great food all-around. This holiday has emphasized how there is something to be thankful for every day and not just on Thanksgiving. We’ve all gone through a day without realizing how grateful we should be for the people we meet and life’s amazing gifts. Within the next few days or on Thanksgiving, I challenge you to name 3 things every day that you’re thankful for. Friends, family, or even a sandwich you ate for lunch are a few ideas. Next, I challenge you to say thank you to someone every day for a week. On the first day, you could say thank you to someone who holds the door for you. Say thank you to your neighbor, best friends, or parents. You could thank them for friendship or even their support. Finally, I dare you to return the favor by showing someone your gratitude. Write a colorful thank you note to show your appreciation. Give out notes, flowers, or candy to brighten up a person’s day. Volunteer in the community to show people that they are appreciated. Those two powerful words can be expressed in so many different ways and it’s up to you how simple and creative you want to do it. And for the classic question: What are you most thankful for this year?

I want to say thank you…now pass it on and spread some kindness!

“Showing gratitude is one of the simplest yet most powerful things humans can do for each other.” -Randy Pausch
