Every Friday Jimmy Fallon writes ‘thank you” notes to random people or places. I have decided to take a spin on that, only my “thank you” notes will be sincere because I don’t say thank you nearly enough to the people in my life, and I will also do “Thank you Monday’s”, so I can start my week off on a positive note!
My 12th “Thank You Note” is to you! That’s right, YOU, the person reading this!
My beloved readers,
I have mentioned before that my love language is time. If you are not sure what that means I encourage you to read the book “The 5 Love Languages” by Gary Chapman. If your interested, you can purchase the book here *Note, I do not receive any rewards, monetary or otherwise for endorsing this book. I just think it’s a book that everyone should read, because it helps one understand how others perceive love.* My husband and I read the book while we went through premarital counseling, and while this book is wonderful for understanding your partner, I have found that I can apply it to all of my relationships. When I say that my love language is time, it means that I deeply value time that is spent with me or on me. The best way I feel love by others is by someone giving me their time. This does not necessarily mean they have to spend physical time with me. I appreciate random phone calls, text messages, emails, and Marco Polo’s or Snap Chats, just to say hi. I appreciate homemade gifts, because someone took the time to not only think of me, but make something from their own hands, just for me! I appreciate snail mail so much because someone took time out of their day to write me a letter, and once again, that person thought of me and decided they would send me something to make me smile. (This works through social media as well, but I love mail that isn’t bills!) So I deeply appreciate that YOU took a moment to stop and read my blog, and whether you leave me encouragement through comments or a like, or whether you read it and simply keep on scrolling, I still very much appreciate that you took the time to read something that I took the time to write and share with you!
So once again, I very sincerely appreciate it! Thank you!!
Love & life lessons,
