Thanks, Gracias, Xiexie

Say thank you to deepen a friendship, repair a bond, to make sure another person knows what they mean to you. Try it, you'll like it.

I was taught from a young age to say thank you. It’s the polite thing to do! I teach my children and students to show appreciation and respect and expect them to do so when they received kindness from others.

I also want to thank my colleagues with whom I had the pleasure of working during my career. I ask everyone who feels the need to show their appreciation to send me a recorded message, video, or audio and mail it to Please, make sure you clearly identify yourselves for my planned reel. MUCHAS GRACIAS!

Thanks and Kudos for the January 6 Committee. 20 million American TV viewers is a step in the road to recovery.

Sometimes, though, it can be difficult to say thank you in a way that truly expresses how grateful we are. A simple “thank you” can seem like such a small thing to say when someone has done something that we really appreciate. 

This is one of the reasons why I like to show my appreciation for all my LinkedIn connections and in three languages. It makes me a go-giver in addition to being a go-getter.
