In the USA - Thursday is "Thanksgiving Day". It is supposed to be a time when we reflect on what we are thankful for and celebrate those things. Everyday of our lives there are people we appreciate, but we don't necessarily pat them on the back and let them know. Even if we say it sometimes, it is really nice to put it into writing or to make a special effort to say it. I propose that you take a moment to make a phone call, write an email, or write a regular mail note to people like the following - telling them, "I wanted you to know that I'm thankful for you, and for what you do in my life." Your Pastor. Your Music Minister. Your Youth Minister. Your Sunday School Teacher. Head of the Deacons. Church secretary. Church janitor. Your spouse. Your son. Your daughter. Your sibling. Your parent. Your employer. I am sure there are many, many others.
