Have you shown your gratitude?

As November comes to a close, all that yummy turkey has been gobbled up (no pun intended), and the Christmas season is getting into full swing, I ask you to take a moment to think about how even the smallest things can make a huge difference.

Who do you see day to day? Your family, close friends, perhaps a neighbor . . . but is that all? If you live in an apartment, don’t you see the landlord from time to time? Or how about those of you who go to get your hair done – don’t you have a stylist? The lady who works at the coffee shop where you get your morning cup, your favorite waiter at that little deli, the people who come and mow your lawn . . . people that you see from day to day who in some way provide a service for you. Do you think of these people when compiling your Christmas list?

“I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers.”
Ephesians 1:16

This Christmas, I challenge you to include these people in your gift-giving. A nice card, a plate of cookies, a $5 gift certificate to Starbucks . . . it doesn’t have to be much, or it can be quite elaborate! It’s your way of saying thank you for the hard work that they do. Yes, it may be your job, but don’t you like to be acknowledged for what you do? You never know how your small gesture can affect someone!

Please, share with me how you plan to grace those who make YOUR life easier with a little bit of seasonal love!

  1. Awesome reminders πŸ™‚ I usually try to do loaves or cookies. I’ll make sure to include those that I normally take for granted on my Christmas list.
