I was, initially, surprised to learn that “thank you” had anything to do with Love. It’s obvious that it is the ‘polite’ and ‘courteous’ phrase to use in many situations, but an element of Love? Really?
Thank you——–I am grateful for the benefit I have received from your actions.
Thanking is the third critical action element of Love.
The robotic “thank you,” at the checkout, with no eye contact, has no meaning.
If it isn’t sincere it’s meaningless, no matter where.
A simple “thank you,” from the heart, with even a few seconds of eye contact, is perceived by the receiver as real and meaningful. This holds true in business as well as in the home, between friends, acquaintances and the stranger who holds the door for us.
Thanking takes some degree of energy. Energy is the force of our life so since we are spending some of it anyway, say “thank you” from the bottom of our hearts, with meaning, let it ring out with sincerity every chance we get.

The Thanksgiving holiday was meant to be a day during which America would give thanks to our Creator for the benefits we have received from His actions.
