Appreciating the Important People in Our Lives

Written by Braiden on March 21, 2011

Last month, Bruce Hammit, a customer-service director in Illinois, submitted a very worthwhile suggestion on the way he thanks people now for their impact on his life. He says:

“Every New Year’s Eve I call one person who has been important in my life and I thank them for helping me grow as an individual.

I have called relatives, past teachers, and close friends.

I also have sent letters to important people in my life letting them know how much I have appreciated having them as friends.

So I guess I would advise that you not wait for the final five minutes.

What I do helps me know that I have told loved ones of my appreciation for them before they pass away.”

Have you thanked someone important to you today?
