Today's quick take is an interesting book for you to consider checking out at your local library, inter-library loan, or bookstore.
Author John Kralik was having a really tough stretch and was buoyed in a dark moment by an unexpected thank you note he received. As an experiment he challenged himself to sort of return the favor... every day for a year. He set out to write a thank you note each day and every day for one full year. The book 365 Thank Yous chronicles both the experiment and how the process changed him along the way.
I've toyed with trying the experiment with my kiddos next year. Anybody else interested? Maybe we could collaborate? Let me know!
