Appreciation & Acts of Kindness – Thank You, Dear Friends!

The people around me have been so awesome lately. It’s as if God is showing me who my true friends are. I’m really learning to appreciate each person around me even more. Thanks, God.

Nowadays, it seems as though people are not as appreciative of the people and opportunities around them. Sometimes we take things for granted and don’t say “Thank You” enough. As such, I wanted to thank each person who has touched my life this week (just in the last 5 days!) and acknowledge your presence in my life. See it as my way of saying, THANK YOU for making this world & my life so much more amazing!

If we’ve talked at all this week, you’ll probably find your name listed below. It’s just that each encounter has been phenomenal (despite only lasting a couple of minutes)!

  • A. Chow – saved me a cubicle at 8am, printed my notes when my printer ran out of toner!
