“Thank you.”

Those two little words (or “thanks” if you want to be quick about it) can mean a lot. Or, depending on how you wield them, they can mean almost nothing. Just like “How are you?” or “I love you,” “Thank you” is a phrase that can hold great weight or have all the heft and permanence of a morning fog.

With every single one of these ideas, there are two important things to always keep in mind: Be sincere and show that you care, just as someone recently cared for you.
