Thank someone today

In my post “…the demise of the thank you,” I lament the lost art of acknowledging a thoughtful gift or action, even when it’s as easy as sending a text or an email or posting a note on a friend’s Facebook page. We are all busy, but we all have the same 24 hours in a day. On that note, it took me a few sit-downs at my laptop this past week, but I finally sent off a thank you to each workshop facilitator I had the honor of learning from at the writers’ conference I attended in April. And for those of you I haven’t thanked lately: my apologies. Thank you for reading (and proofreading) my ramblings and rhetoric, for whispering words of love and encouragement in my ear, for putting up with my changing moods, my writer’s sense of fantasy vs. reality, my on-again, off-again belief in Someday and for lending me a shoulder when I need one. You are appreciated.

Who can you thank today?
