The same can be said when it comes to wishing someone well. A simple thanks, is sufficient enough. But, for some ungodly reason there are people that haven't been able to manage that small feat. I'm curious as to what goes through the mind of someone that reads correspondence and then chooses...ehhh....on to the next one. I can't even say that this post is about one particular person because the truth is a plethora of people are guilty of it. I don't know, it's Saturday morning and i'm wide awake, without having my cup of hot chocolate. I guess you can say i'm getting a bit ornery in my old age.
At any rate, if someone wishes you a happy birthday on FB or some other site, say thank you. If someone compliments you, acknowledge them. If someone sends you an email whether it's work related or personal, how about typing a response? If someone calls, you return the phone call. You never know, there could be a day where you are wishing to hear from them in some capacity or other and they aren't here. Life is too short for us to not take that 30 seconds to write thank you, I love you too, i'll get back to you or the numerous other responses you can come up with. Think about it.
Enjoy your Saturday and stay warm!!
