Since Easter time is a time which reminds us to be thankful and show gratitude, I found this quote from G.B. Stern which I thought was quite appropriate:
Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone. ~G.B. Stern
If you’re grateful for something someone has done for you or given you, or just grateful that they are a part of your life, then let them know. A simple ‘thank you’ can do wonders for the person on the receiving end. And once people know that you appreciate what they are doing, they will definitely be encouraged to keep it up and will want to do more for you.
It is built in us to want to be appreciated and to be made to feel valuable. So give someone the gift of affirmation by telling them how much they mean to you, and how much you appreciate them.
