Thank you: A modest gesture imbued with real significance

In today's fast-paced lifestyle some of the old civilities of life are in danger of being lost. We hear plenty from people who feel they have been short-changed in services or relationships, but seldom does anyone take the trouble to say thanks for a good deed done.

It doesn't have to be a great gesture that deserves our gratitude.

It can merely be the person who held open a door when we tried to get through with our hands full or someone who provided a service with a smile. The great thing about saying thank you is that it doesn't cost a penny, but it can often be remembered long after an expensive gift has lost its lustre.
