Preparing, training for and attempting a charity challenge certainly impacts on your family time. That’s why I arranged a special thank-you to one special person in my life. She is the hub, the rock and Amy has supported me in everything I’ve ever done.
I turned to Waitrose as I was told about a campaign called ‘A Special Champagne Thank-you.’ I thought after everything that happened leading up to and during this years challenge, it was the least I could do. A special meal was also prepared for a special person.
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say ‘thank-you?’ - William Arthur Ward
Writing this post got me thinking. Do we say thank-you enough? I was brought up to have good manners, I was told that they cost nothing. This is something I’m trying to pass on to my kids but it’s harder than it sounds! I guess with perseverance we’ll get there. One thing I can’t stand is when you hold a door open for someone and they just walk through it. No thank-you, no nod of the head, nothing.
Why not think of a special person in your life and say thank-you today. Treat them to a bottle of champagne and a special meal courtesy of Waitrose. Amy was delighted with my gesture and I think it’s important to not forget the little things in life. The little things that people do for you on a daily basis and you may take for granted.
To Amy. Thank-you for my life we have created together. Thank-you for giving birth to our two beautiful children. Thank-you for all the little things that you do that I may take for granted sometimes. Thank-you for supporting my crazy challenges even when they go wrong! Thank-you for all the little ups and downs that make life worth living. Thank-you for everything.
To you guys, thank-you for reading.
