I love Thanksgiving. I love that it makes me sit and really think about all of the things I am thankful for.
Every year I write a note of thanks to someone who has really helped or touched me in the past year. Not a "hey thanks for being such a good friend, you are awesome" note, but a heartfelt note of appreciation full of emotion and sincere gratitude.
I realize sometimes we forget to express in words how much our most powerful relationships mean to us. By writing a note to someone special every year, my relationships have been strengthened, and it gives me a positive outlook for the whole day.
Try it out! If writing a note isn't your thing, make a phone call or have a face-to-face conversation. You won't regret it.
