I was getting a manicure from a young woman who was telling me she just got married and as a wedding present her in-laws bought her a brand-new car. I said “What? That is amazing, who does something that kind!” She then complained about the car to me. I listened and with as much love as I could muster, suggested that she should be grateful for the car. She told me she had never once thanked them for that car. By the end of the manicure, she was going to go home and say thank you. Really?
Did your coworker help you with a project?
Did someone give you a job?
Does someone babysit your children for you?
Has your sister been a source of love and support?
Do your parents help you out?
Did someone do something nice for you and you forgot to thank them and be grateful?
