Words are just words. Deep down I'm sure they feel happy. Plus, (little) kids rarely say thank you
When I first posted this I wasn't feeling appreciated in any sense. Thats why I said a simple "Thank you" would suffice. The bad thing about all this is that it wasn't little kids doing this to me. It was a 40-something year old, a 16 year old, a 12 and 10 year old. They're all old enough to know how to use proper manners.
Words are just words. I don't seem to agree with on that. Its not that you're wrong, its just that I have a different opinion on it. Words can build a city and words can tear one down. They are very powerful.
