50 Things I have learned in 50 years – Day 47

We are on the final countdown to my 50th birthday! I guess you can say that as I get closer to the day I am overwhelmed by a mix of feelings- excitement, sadness and bit of nausea. I am sharing the lessons I have learned during my 50 years on earth.

thank you

I know you’re thinking, ‘What have you learned about people?’ Which brings me to #47

Say thank you at home….all the time.

Gratitude begins with you and it begins in your own home. Nothing is sweeter than having your children spontaneously say ‘thank you’ when you do something for them. Model the gratitude and thank them all the time! As I write this, my 8 year old just said ‘thank you’ to me for telling him that he buttoned his shirt wrong.

It makes the home a warm and wonderful place.

Come back for the next 3 days and see what else I have learned.
