Always in Season

Thanks. Danke. Gracias. Merci.

Parents around the world and through the centuries teach children to thank others for favors, kindness, and gifts.

Good manners never go out of style. (I like that phrase.)

One of my characters (in an unpublished to date romance) reminds the reader of the importance of kindness and manners — traits she learned working with customers in a shop and needs to practice when an annoying childhood acquaintance reappears in her life.

Do you have things to be thankful for? Food? Clothing? Shelter? Friends? Family?

When counting blessings (or giving thanks) remember the books. I’d run out of numbers listing all the things I’ve learned between their covers.
