When I was in Mississippi recently, my Mother taught me through her actions the true meaning of appreciation. Sometimes, we think that we know it all, but there is so much that it left for us to learn. As I cared for her, she said, “Thank you sugar” every single time. I said, “Hey, Momma, I am your daughter, you don’t have to thank me. You took care of me as a baby, now it’s my turn to do the same for you.” Cheerfully, my Momma said, “Always show people that you appreciate them and always thank them regardless of who they are. It speaks to your home training and integrity.” So today, I say “Thank you my dear Mother for truly showing me the true meaning of feeling appreciated and being grateful to those who assist me.” Humility goes a long way! Regardless of what language we say those magic two words, Thank You, we must make it a mental point to let their utterance glide from our lips. Thank you for reading!
