To those who deserve thanks,
A friend of mine once said that it’s pretty important to let the reason of your smile know that you smiled. I couldn’t agree more. We need to show appreciation. It could be as simple as telling that person ‘thank you’. Sometimes we do things without expecting anything in return. Be that as it may, it’s in our nature as humans to feel appreciated. I honestly don’t know where I’m going with this, so I’ll just get on with it.
I want to thank the people who read my blog, those that follow my blog, those that like my posts, those that leave comments, those that say thank you for a small gesture such as holding open a door, those that acknowledge the trouble you’ve gone through even though you wanted to do it all along just to see them smile, those who have surprised me with their kindness, those who have put a smile on my face, those who have been there when I needed someone by my side, those few people who I call friends who have put up with me even when it wasn’t my intention to burden them, those who respect their friends enough to actually bother picking up the phone and calling them for no reason other than it has almost been 24 hours since they last talked to them, those that smile at strangers because what would a world be without a stranger’s smile, strangers that have smiled at me, those that can acknowledge that everyone is in pain and that sometimes they might hide it not because they aren’t in pain but because they care about you enough to help you before they help themselves, those that can plan things and actually follow through with the plans, strangers that give you a sincere compliment, those who can see that something is wrong with you and offer to help, those that have changed someone’s life for the better, and, finally, those who try.
