Resolution #4: Thank Somebody

Today's resolution is to express gratitude to someone deserving, for past or present assistance.
I am going to write a letter to the physician who looked into my father's eyes and stroked his forehead when he was in great pain (you are wonderful, Dr.Tewodros Addisse!).

  1. A postcard to that business or employee that remembered how much customer service mattered
  2. The teacher that inspired you then or now
  3. The neighbor who keeps a beautiful garden
  4. The friend who may think you take their kindnesses for granted
  5. An organization that provides a needed service
  6. A politician who stood up for the voiceless
  7. Someone at your place of worship, school, or other community center that goes above and beyond in volunteering time or skills
  8. An artist that took your breath away
OK, you know what to do.  I'd love to hear about it.
