Thank You…Really?

Words like love, gratitude and appreciation evoke emotions…

What does gratitude look like?
How is appreciation shown?

Is saying Thank You enough? I know we were taught to say thank you when someone does something for us.

Yet, I just wonder about authentic appreciation and gratefulness? What do they lead too?

How about the one that said thank you? If they get a chance to help that person, do they help and are they glad they could?

A grateful person wants to return the favor and hope for the opportunity to do so! I know deceivers that say thank you brilliantly, but won’t lift a finger out of generosity.

Be careful, to follow-up your thank you! Don’t let thank you, become a popular “how are you doing” without really wanting to know.

  1. This is a very thought provoking topic, that screams “actions speak louder than words.” Thanks so much for your insight and sharing. Whether I am the guest or I am the visitor, I’m very
    Appreciative!

  2. That last line!! I learned years ago not to ask if I didn’t really care or have time to stop and hear how someone was. I can always tell when a conversation will be dull or when I find myself struggling for words by what questions I ask another or they ask me.

  3. I never say Thank You lightly; and I never receive it without gratitude for the expressed appreciation. So, yes, THANK YOU for the reminder to ask “How are you?” with the same sincerity! ❤

    Well, yeah. A thankyou might not be enough when there’s lot more feelings involved.
