Say “Thank You”

I invited some friends for dinner on Saturday and we had a great time.  We always laugh a lot with this group of friends.  One of the couples brought their four year old daughter and  also brought me a beautiful bouquet.  I thanked them accordingly and we settled down.

The little girl came to me after about ten minutes and said “Say thank you to mummy for the flowers”.  We all had a good laugh, but I did thank her mummy again.  Apparently, the little girl (like all young children) is always reminded to say thank you when she is given something and she thought of passing along the lesson to me.

Flowers from friend – I have no vase size suitable for a small bouquet 😦

    A lovely gift of flowers, and how great that this little girl has learned good manners so young. I wish more parents would take time to teach their children the common courtesies of life. 🙂

      I love the flowers. It was refreshing to hear the little girl pass on something she had learnt. This showed me that she now knows that it is good to show appreciation.

    Little ones add so much joy to our lives, as do flowers. 🙂
