People cannot tell what you are thinking. There is no window into your brain that will allow your friends and coworkers to know how much you care for them. They will never know how much you appreciate their help if you fail to speak up. You must verbalize your feelings.

Try to start the day with a thank you, and close it in a similar fashion. In spite of the court rulings in our country, it is still permissible to thank God for all that is good around you.
