Friends are the family we chose__Jess C.
All of us like to feel valued and appreciated. However, it is easy for most of us to go through our day forgetting to complete simple acts of kindness.
I remember the past years of my matrimony (separated now tho), I used to really appreciate my woman’s domestic efforts like being the only to sweep, keep the house clean, wash the dishes, empty the bin, in most cases, she would wake me up, prepares me for bath, set me up for work, the children, still prepares our food 24/7, go to the market…OMG!!! Too many to start listing…I look at her someday, I felt this emotional pity for sm1 I so much love and cherish and I told her, “The ONE (that was d name I used to call her) henceforth we gon start sharing the domestic works, starting with cooking (coz Am really good if not better than most women of our generation, at that…thanks to my world best Momma), sweeping, bathing and movement of the children to and fro school, assisting in going to the market for her, if need be etc.” And she asked, “Oh really, but u don’t have to Daddy, Am very cool with these, that’s how my mother taught me to…”
But, after my persistence, we both sat down and drew up a time-table to work with, with her still getting the highest percentage…
That’s another way of appreciating and saying “Thank You” to someone or something for a good deed by your friends/beloveths
When I am done with paymeny @ the Barbing Salon, I look straight up to the guy and say “Thank you dude” (upon satisfaction though…smiles). I swear down, even the guy would really appreciate it in return, and would felt elated, encouraged and honoured, I assume.
When people celebrate, most especially on your day, and even some of them who never even expected to hear from coz you think and also know that you ain’t In same class with them, it means to me that I am highly recognised and appreciated, and in return, I would feel highly encouraged and very honoured like this that I would have to say “A BIG THANK YOU TO YOU ALL…”

Remember, everyone needs to feel valued and appreciated. If you are a kid, teen, or young adult, then appreciate your parents and your teachers. Try to look at things from their perspective. Adults, try to remember when you were a kid! Workers, think about what you can do to make your workplace a more peaceful place. Maybe that employee just needs a pat on the back or some understanding about something he/she might be going through at home. Employees, maybe your boss needs the same consideration.
Take time to thank someone and appreciate those who assist you in your day #JustAsIHaveDoneHereNow. Stop a moment to share this article/blog with someone. Let’s all work together to share this ittle piece of appreciation and words of thanks.
