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!
