As we prepare to wrap up my blog’s fourth year together, I would like to talk about a quote that will remain with me for a long time. I first heard it during a field trip to the Heinz History Center more than 10 years ago. The quote is … “Remember your pleases and thank yous.” It was actually one of my teachers who said the quote back then … and it hasn’t really stuck with me too much … until now.
Up until a few years ago, I wasn’t too crazy about people saying “please” and “thank you” to me a lot, but nowadays, I’m urging my friends and even my relatives to say those words to me as often as they possibly can. This way, they can have more respect than they once had. Now, I’m starting to say those words at least 50 percent of the time. You guys are all fantastic … and I hope you all will be able to say “please” and “thank you” to me as often as possible on a daily basis.
Beginning this Monday, August 13th, I will start celebrating my blog’s fourth anniversary by giving you statistics about my blog. The blog will turn four years old in exactly two weeks. That event will occur on August 24th. I plan on starting my blog’s fifth year on August 26th.
Enjoy your day and enjoy your weekend!
