Today is all about appreciating the many blessings and the wonderful people in our lives. January 11 is International Thank You Day (ITYD), an international holiday created by Mendota, IL., native, Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith.
In our busy and stressful lives, it is important to remember that each day truly is a blessing. We sometimes take things, and each other, for granted. Whether we are facing a health crisis, are currently unemployed or underemployed or are enjoying a rich and prosperous year, it’s important to remember circumstances can change when we least expect it.
Today is the perfect opportunity to be thankful for friends, family, freedom, food, shelter and basic necessities. Heck, we should even be thankful for that cranky co-worker or rotten boss because at least we have a job!
In honor of International Thank You Day, thank those around you. Try it all day long - people will wonder what you're up to! And who knows? Maybe that pearly white smile or sincere "thank you" will lift someone’s spirits more than you realize. And to all you fine folks out there in cyberspace, who continue to enjoy these entertaining naij.com articles, THANK YOU!
January 11 is also Milk Day!
