Saying Thank You

I haven't circled back around to this in awhile:

I wrote a book on Raising Money.  It's called Partner Like Paul: A Guide to Fundraising Biblical & Practically.  It's free and you can find it by clicking here.

One big part in Step 5 of my plan is "Saying Thank You."  I had this thought just yesterday*.

When I say thank you to someone -  normally through a thank you card, but also through messages, emails and face to face - when I say thank you... am I doing that because I am actually thankful or because I feel that I have to?

It's a sad state of affairs if I'm not truly thankful for what's been given to me.  If I'm not thankful, then Saying Thank You becomes a means to an end, just another step in the fundraising process.

It's time to be thankful first, then say thank you second.

*I had this thought while being truly thankful that someone was helping me with snow removal.  That was yesterday from when I wrote this, not posted it.  But it also snows all the time this winter so it might as well have been really yesterday.
