      Thank You Thursday – Everyone Should Give Thanks

      Thank You Revolution Header

      We are half way through the 90 Day Thank You Note Challenge!

      Today, I remind you that writing thank you notes is for everyone.  It doesn’t matter how busy you are.  It doesn’t matter how “important” you are.  It doesn’t matter how rich or poor you are.  You can write thank you notes no matter who you are!

      Here’s a thank you note from someone you might recognize.

      The note is written to Yann Martel, the author of Life of Pi.  In case you can’t read the image above, here is what is says:

      Mr. Martel –

      My daughter and I just finished reading Life of Pi together.  Both of us agreed we prefer the story with animals.

      It is a lovely book – an elegant proof of God, and the power of storytelling.

      Thank you.

      Barack Obama

      Can you imagine the look on Yann Martel’s face when he opened the envelope and read this note?

      I bet the note made his day.

      You don’t have to be famous like Barack Obama.  You have the power to make someone’s day by sending them a simple note.

      Who is getting a thank you note from you this week?
