    I still remember that person who said to me ‘Thank you’ I smiled and I said YES! finally someone who appreciate, that’s exactly what I wanted to hear.

    يقول النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم: (من لا يشكر الناس لا يشكر الله)، يعني أن من كان من طبيعته وخلقه عدم شكر الناس على معروفهم وإحسانهم إليه فإنه لا يشكر الله

    Translation: Mohammed PBUH once said: “He who does not thank people, does not thank Allah.”

    So Thank you, Hamda! .. People need to learn such lessons.

    One of the brilliant and effective ideas I, actually, have had for a while now is to send a short and concise thank-you letter via snail mail to the people who matter to me in some way. It is such a beautiful way to show one’s gratitude to others and it will always be remembered by the recipients of the letter.

    I thank you for reminding us of this oft-overlooked positive gesture.

    Dear Miss.AlHashmi
    I believe that you have captured the very importance of gratitude and summarized it in an easy way for other people to understand. And as a grateful person I would like to thank you for such an “entertaining” and at the same time “Helpful” article.
    I hope to read more of your work, and thank you again for spending your precious time to offer such valuable articles.

    I'd like to send my first thank you note after this article to you … Thank you for this lovely inspiring peice of art that you have weaved in words. People do not realize the importance of gratitude until they are put in a situation when no1 shows them any .. even then, many do not comprehend its importance! Sometimes, even a smile of gratitude can take us miles witht he person receiving it .. it can change a persons depressed day into a positive one .. the simple words of gratitude.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this article .. thanks again .. I look forward to next months edition

    Thank you for once again sharing your insights and views through artwork, Hamda. You remind us all of how to be grateful for those around us and not to take for granted what we have in our lives. Always so important to remember, especially this month.

    I hope you continue writing these for a long time. Keep up the great work!
