Just a simple “Thank you.”

At times, everyone can be small. Thoughtless, self-serving, self-absorbed.

But every one of us can also be very large. We can become as universe-embracing as the brightest philosophers, and as elevated as the angels.

There are a few short phrases that, like a warm breath of air, expand our souls immediately. One such phrase is “I love you.” Another easy phrase is: “Thank you.”

A simple spoken “thank you” is a generous act that rewards generosity. It strengthens the common bond and humanity of two people, both the giver and the receiver of appreciation.

The words are a heartfelt handshake between two souls. The words are a bow to the importance of each life. The words induce reflection. The words annihilate pettiness.

Two small and very easy words.

  2. So true. So powerful. As are the words “I’m sorry.”

    That is so true, just those two words of Thank You and I’m Sorry mean such a lot to a person.

  4. It seems that the simpler the gifts we can share, the more meaningful and powerful they can be, and this is certainly an example.
