Rants of a deranged squirrel.

#360: Thanks

[F.U.C.K. is an e-zine that I started on January 24, 1993 and ended on January 24, 2000. One concept is that articles should be timeless if possible, so they were not released with dates. As such, the date on this blog is not exact but I will try to use a date as close as possible.]

There are times when it should be said, and there are times when it is assumed a person is thankful. As time passes with friends, more and more things fall under the ‘assumed’ category. However, there are times when it can’t be said enough because of specific and unique circumstances. One thing this file is not, is a beg for thanks from anyone. Take this file as my normal rants and observations. Odds are this file will overlap on some points with another I will be writing shortly.

Some people are in a better position to help their friends, while others are in a position where they are likely to need help more often than others. It often has little to do with personal actions, but more with circumstances that occur in a person’s life. Sometimes these events are controllable, while other times they aren’t. There is no way to define or categorize these people or actions.

As time passes, I find that the people I know thank each other very infrequently. Thinking more, I find that I probably don’t say it nearly enough. This is by no means a suitable ‘make up’, but this will serve as one way to let a few people know that I do appreciate what they have done for me. The good part is, most of the people who I feel I should thank read these files.

From here on out, I am going to try to make an effort to say that one word more often, and I encourage you to do the same. It takes a second of your life, and lets someone know that you DO appreciate them for whatever reason. I doubt I really need to say more at this point. As usual, just think about it.

Once again, saying ‘thanks’ in a file like this is in no way what they deserve for their friendship and help. It is one way of making sure they know I am serious and that I mean what I say. So here it is, once more, thank you.
