Thank You Is A Gift For Two


Posted: December 24, 2005

Thank_u_languagesHoliday shopping often means long lines, harried store clerks and customers who frequently are not in the most festive of moods. Today while I was at my neighborhood grocery store I noticed that although the lines moved slowly people were smiling.

I found out the reason when my groceries were bagged. The gentleman who was packing the butter and eggs, for the cheesecake I was planning to bake, was singing Christmas songs to each customer. As he handed over their bags he looked them in the eye and with a genuine smile said, "Thank you for shopping with us. Please come back soon." I left the store with a lighter step than when I entered.

Although he was thanking me, it seemed as thought he was getting as much as he was giving. At it's very best "thank you" is a reciprocal feeling. Whether it's making a special holiday dinner, singing a song or finding the perfect gourmet gift to express your appreciation, remember you're giving yourself a gift too.
