Thank You

November 24th, 2014

Where are your Thanks? Where are the Thank You’s for all that you have done? Where is the recognition for all your sacrifices? Where are the accolades for all the times you put others needs ahead of your own?

Firstly, let’s be honest. All the times you have sacrificed, gone without, given of yourself, you did it because you didn’t have a choice. Your heart convinced you that it was the right thing to do and you acted upon that. You knew that giving of yourself was the only option and it most cases nobody else could have done it better. You gave because you cared.

Secondly, you are a lover. That is, you hold love as the most important thing in this world and you realize that if you don’t give of yourself, the world becomes a little less loving and that’s not a world you want to create if you can help it.

‚Äč Thirdly, you’re a good person, a very good person. You feel for the suffering of others. I mean you really, really feel for the suffering of others, people, pets, wild creatures, etc. Oh, you might be the toughest, hardest case around but inside you love, you care, you want to alleviate suffering and increase happiness in others.

Where’s your Thanks? It’s in the way someone raises their children because of you. It’s the dog or cat that gets rescued because of your example. It’s the second chance that someone gives because you gave them one. It’s in the child who becomes a parent and suddenly understands the choices you made. It’s the kindness shown to a stranger because they were a stranger to you when you helped.

If you’ve been waiting for a Thank You for all you have done, here it is. THANK YOU for everything. THANK YOU for the kind words, the money, your presence, your touch. THANK YOU for making our world a little brighter, a little funnier, a lot more loving. Thank you for your sacrifices. They made a difference then and they will continue to for a very long time. THANK YOU.
