Typically, this time of year, Autumn, is when loads of festivals are taking place all around the Northern Hemisphere to commemorate a great harvest and a way to say thanks to each other in the community.
As a way of showing gratitude to all of you, my readers, I am going to list 5 ways to say thanks.
- Give the person/people you want to thanks to a thank you card.
- Just recently, my father-in-law got married. I saw his bride writing out thank you cards to all the guests who attended and gave them gifts.
- Verbally tell someone thanks.
- When someone says or does something you appreciate and you say thanks to them face to face.
- Giving a gift of gratitude.
- When you appreciate someone so much for what they’ve done you want to give them a gift in return as a way to say thanks.
- Making a meal as a way to say thanks.
- Sometimes, it’s appropriate to make a meal for someone in appreciate for what they’ve done as a way to say thanks.
- Finally, a nice hug or handshake to say thanks.
- There’s not much to it. But, handshakes, or hugs, are a sign of respect.
This tips list is loosely based on “The Five Love Languages”:
- Words of Affirmation
- Acts of Service
- Receiving Gifts
- Quality Time
- Physical Touch
It all depends on what your prime love language is as to what you will offer as a way of showing thanks. We all do it. We have a primary and a secondary. I happen to be primarily quality time. My secondary is words of affirmation.
What about you? Are you familiar with the 5 love languages? What is yours? Comment your thoughts. I’d like to hear from my readers on this.
