Two simple words

“Common courtesy isn’t all that common.” That is the response I often hear from friends and family when I am surprised by the behavior of others.

Practicing what I preach, I try not to give the discourteous behavior of others too much credence but its hard not to notice at times.

The words ‘thank you’ leave my mouth constantly, and for the smallest things. When it comes to a kind gesture or favor, saying thank you with a handwritten card or simple gift to express your gratitude takes minimal effort but goes such a long way!

The power of those two simple words or a small gesture of gratitude is immeasurable but unfortunately, under utilized. Courtesy is contagious so spread it around!

Try and take notice of the little things others do for you and don’t forget those two simple words…
