Entry 46: How to Say Thank You

Saying "thank you" may seem like a simple task, but sometimes words are not enough to display gratitude.

For example, how do you say "thank you" to all the wonderful people you have met over the last few years, only to suddenly depart from them?

How do you say "thank you" to the professors who not only gave you their undivided attention when you needed it the most, but they regarded you as a teacher as well?

How do you say "thank you" to friends who seek you out for advice and wisdom, which leads to a heartfelt conversation that lasts over five hours?

How do you say "thank you" to a person who struggles with debt but still buys you treats out of the kindness in their heart?

How do you say "thank you" to parents who treat you more than just a son, but as a man?

How do you say "thank you" to an employer who is beyond generous and offers you guidance and knowledge beyond your years?

How do you say "thank you" to colleagues who understand your passion and go above and beyond their own needs to help fulfill your dreams?

How do you say "thank you" to the lady at Subway who gives you three pieces of bacon when the recipe only calls for two pieces? (true story)

How do you say "thank you" to the people who look up at you while passing by on the sidewalk and greet you with a warm smile?

And how do you say "thank you" to a God who answers your prayers?

In some cases, words aren't enough to express your gratitude for the countless blessings you have received over the years. I wish I could say more to convey how grateful I am for knowing everyone I have had the pleasure of meeting, even in passing.

Without trying to overcomplicate this, I'll just say what I truly feel:

Thank You.
