Today I received an unexpected thank-you note. It was from a young woman who has been attending, for about a year, the church I am privileged to lead. In her note she reminded me of what her life was like before coming to the church, and then she articulated how her life has been impacted since she has been a part of our community. Then she said "thank you."

After a rough week, this was exactly what I needed.

A brief note of thanks. Out of the blue. Short, sincere, and impactful.

I encourage you to write a note of thanks to someone in your life today. It may mean more to them than you will ever know.
