G is for Gratitude

First of all, Thankyou for the kind responses I had on my last post, I really do appreciate the words of encouragement!

It does bring me to the interesting idea of Gratitude.

I don't know about you, but sometimes when someone does something kind for me, or really goes out of their way for me then I never take it for granted.

What I do find though is sometimes expressing gratitude can be quite difficult.

Sometimes a simple 'Thankyou!' just doesn't feel enough, but, what else is there?

There are times when a simple word is not enough, but everything else is almost too much. If someone does you a really decent favor then you may way to express how much you appreciate it but it would be too extreme to buy a present or something similar.

I tend to edge on under expressing rather than risk over expressing. My simple reason for this is in my own experience you can tell when someone is grateful for what you have done, so I assume that others will know how much it means.

Does anyone take a different approach?



  1. I think that sometimes a thank you can be all that is needed I have gone further with a card just to express my gratitude as the person usually can tell whether you are genuine or not. I have listed your blog on my 'J' post tomorrow. Blessings, Amanda
