Raised in the South, I was taught to always say two simple words to any act of consideration or kindness. I’m sure you know what they are. “Thank You.”
Not doing so would have caused me serious trouble (like a backhand).
Growing up, there seemed to be so much to be thankful for.
I’ll never forget that one time we stayed at a Motel 6. It had a pool, which was such a big deal to me. It didn’t matter that it was only 4 feet deep and enclosed with a chain linked fence with highway traffic zooming by. I said “Thanks, Daddy,” when he splurged on the $40 room. I was so grateful.”
- A “thank you” shouldn’t be just for teaching your kids about good manners.
- And it shouldn’t be reserved for only people or extravagant things.
