Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow ~Melody Beattie
I sat down at my desk with a list of 10 names.
Each had made a recent donation to the non-profit organization I work for.
These 10 people contributed to the bottom line.
But I know the deeper story.
About a week or two before the list hit my desk;
10 people in the privacy of their homes thought about my organization.
They thought about the work that is done;
how it makes the world a better place;
they thought about their loved ones who receive quality care from our passionate and dedicated staff;
and then each one in his/her own home sat down and wrote a cheque.
That just blows my mind. It fills me with gratitude.
Armed with my list I had the privilege of calling each one to tell them that:
they made my day
we couldn’t do it without them
and thank you.
Turns out I made their day too.
Two simple yet powerful words.
When’s the last time you said thank you?
