Resource One

 

How To Be Truly Thankful For Gifts

“Say Thank You.” How many times have we heard that, or said that over the last few days? Usually we hear it around children. Their parents have to remind them to communicate appreciation for the gift they just opened.

As children age, they usually automatically say “Thank You” with a smile for the gift they really value. It is often, however, the gifts that are not valued as much which require the prompt to say “Thank You”.
