When someone thanks you for something, you reply…. (Please choose the best answer)
A. It was nothing
B. Just doin’ my job
C. Aww, shucks, anybody would have done the same thing
D. Forget about it!
E. Don’t mention it
F. You’re welcome
Okay, the obvious answer is “you’re welcome.” But how many times do we answer with one of the others?
“Thank you” is a gift. Not accepting it is like throwing that gift back in the giver’s face or stomping it under your heel. Maybe you really feel that you did nothing, and you don’t deserve a thank you. But the person who is giving you thanks feels differently and wants to connect with you through gratitude. Accepting it graciously invites more grace into your life.
