Learning to Say True Thanks

157. Learning to Say True Thanks

Thanksgiving comes around each year and whoever is going to gather, gathers. We figure out how to say what we’re thankful for. I always avoid the vegetable because there’s so much else that is so good—why eat green beans? And then it’s over so quickly.

A couple of years ago I wrote:

luckily

we don’t get what we

deserve or

what we earn

we get a thousand fold more

and we say “thank you”

I don’t know if I have ever described this but very recently I was reminded that the American Sign Language sign for Thank You is to tuck your thumb in the palm of your hand and put your four fingers up to your lips and then move your arm down until your hand is in front of you. And that says “Thank You.”

I’ve been using it more—when I see something amazing, when I want to say a silent thanks, when I’m out in public, just various situations where suddenly you can say “Thank you” with your arm and your hand. Try it out.

And so today on this Thanksgiving either silently or right out loud, I do say “Thank You.”
