Appreciation and acknowledgement are corner stones to building trust and deepening relationships. Write a thank you note or poem to someone who impacted your life in 2011.

Special thanks to my fellow YAM tribe member, Heidi Johnson, for offering today’s prompt. Here’s my poem in response:
Dearest one
Thank you for accepting me
Thank you for loving me so fully and openly
Thank you for supporting me, believing in me, trusting me
Your kindness and friendship make me feel like a million
I cherish you
In every moment

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does. ~William James


If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.  ~Meister Eckhart

    My dear friend, thank you for pushing me to decide which of two paths to walk down. For knowing that if I chose the old familiar one that I would regret it forever. For seeing the future me as much as the present one. Blessings and Peace.
