Say Thank You

I think if we realized just how powerful the words “Thank you” really are, we would use them more often.  I don’t necessarily mean in the check out line or when the waiter brings you your food – though we should be using our manners there too.

I’m talking about taking time to say Thank you to those people who have made an impact in your life.  Maybe you’ve thought about it but just haven’t acted on it.  Maybe your waiting for the right time or when it’s more convenient.  Unfortunately, the longer I live the more I realize that the “right time” and “convenient” are  not things that happen very often – meaning that a whole lot of good words go unspoken.

So today I challenge you to be intentional about saying Thank You to at least one person.  Maybe write a note or a letter to them, make a phone call or take them out for coffee.  Your words may just be the difference they need in their day.

Keeping It Simple,

Week #14 – Go for a Slushy

This weeks simple tip is a result of something that happened with my girls yesterday.  As many of you know, this past week we relocated our family.  It’s been a busy week getting everything cleaned, sorted, packed and moved.  The girls have done a great job of jumping in and lending a hand wherever it was needed without complaint.

Yesterday evening, as I was sitting on the back patio, I thought it was time for an impromptu treat.  Why?  Because it’s fun and because that big and small things in our lives should be celebrated, even if it’s just with a slushy. Read more

Week #9 – Take  A Walk

There is nothing quite like a walk to help clear the heart and mind.  During the spring, summer and fall my husband and I take frequent walks around our farm.  It’s a great time to slow down from the day, catch up with one another, get some exercise and fresh air and put life back in perspective.
