I believe deeply in gratitude and showing appreciation. I know that one kind word can make a huge difference in someones day. It does in mine. If I get an email from a parent, thanking me for something I did for their child, my day is a lot brighter. We all have daily opportunities to be grateful. Any time we are interacting with people, although, lately our face to face interactions have tapered off, there are opportunities. When speaking on the phone, answering an email, passing someone on the street, giving a positive greeting and thanking them if they in any way helped you, goes a long way. Even if you think it sounds fake, try it out and see the results.
