Isn’t it nice to be appreciated? Appreciation goes a long way with most people. I don’t always expect to be appreciated but it is always great when I am. I would work double hard on most anything when I know my efforts are appreciated. On the other hand, when what I do is taken for granted, not noticed or dismissed as unimportant I want to quit. It does not take much to tell someone “thank you” or “I appreciate you”. I don’t tell people enough myself and when I do I think “wow, that meant so much to them”. Then I promise myself I will remember to appreciate people more and to tell them so. Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t. I guess I’m no better than anyone else!
