30 ways to say ‘thank you’


At my 50th birthday party, I gave each guest a booklet listing 50 ways to celebrate with me. I did not want any presents. Instead, I wanted us all to practice “paying it forward,” by giving of ourselves to other people and creatures, and to causes that need our help the most.

This holiday season is a perfect time to pay it forward. The following are suggestions from the original booklet and can be used for each day of November.
