I show my appreciation to others.

My life is full of blessings. As I think of those close to me, I am thankful for the wonderful feelings and memories I have shared with them.

My family members help me when I have car trouble or require a sitter for the kids. My neighbors take care of the yard or check my mail when I take a trip. My friends enrich my life in some way each day.

It is important for me to express my gratitude to others for their kindnesses.

I recognize how lucky I am to have such wonderful human beings in my life. I let others know how much I appreciate them.

I show appreciation in many ways. I say “thanks” in an e-mail or text. Sometimes, a phone call or personal visit is in order. At times, I thank others by giving them a small gift or inviting them to lunch.

Expressing my appreciation brings me joy. It also brings positive feelings to others.

Today, I show how much I appreciate what others do for me. They deserve recognition for their assistance. I let them know how thankful I am for their presence in my life.
