For many of us, today, December 26th, is filled with putting wrapping paper in recycling bins, figuring out where the receipts went, and generally climbing out after holiday pressures and festivities. Today is actually known as National Thank You Note Day, too. As you consider those whom you want to thank for whatever joys they shared with you during this holiday season, it’s a great time to consider the words in today’s Winter Break W.O.W. Quotation 2.
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them. —John F. Kennedy
Today’s quotation by John F. Kennedy focuses on our need for gratitude—not just feeling it, but also expressing it. A most eloquent thank you note is always something that reflects doing the right thing. Even heartfelt notes will only go so far until the actions of our lives reflect our gratitude as well.
It’s not only about the words in our thank you notes, although they are most often welcome and deeply appreciated by their recipients. It is about something more, something bigger. It is not how we verbally express our gratitude that matters so much as how we express our gratitude through the actions we take, the choices we make, and the changes of which we are a part. That’s living by our words.
