How to show Gratitude
Be Specific
Using a name says you are important. 48 times Nehemiah uses a personal name. You are important.
Focus on the details of what they have done. What you did was important.
Be Sensitive
Move past the surface and the heart. Recognize the heart when you notice their character. Humility, generosity
Be searching
Reminder to do it. We get too busy. We think more about how I should be appreciated. If you are unappreciated, appreciate someone.
Studies show you get new energy and happiness when you appreciate someone!
