Manners have always been really important to teach my children and saying thank you was one of the first phrases they were ever taught. Growing up my parent’s made sure we always showed our gratitude by saying thank you and it has followed me to adulthood.

Saying thank you is more than just a word though. It is an act of kindness, a gesture and a form of how we treat others. The best way to show someone you appreciate them is by showing them. My family’s favorite way of saying thank you is by volunteering our time. We love to help our servicemen. Whether it is our local police and fire department or the troops out there defending our country.

Now that my children are in school and blessed with incredible teachers, I have taught my son that the best way to say thank you to his teacher is to listen and to follow her rules in the classroom. Of course, he enjoys drawing her adorable pictures as well.
