Just who have you appreciated today? I mean authentic appreciation, where you look someone in the eye and tell them specifically the good deeds they have done for you.
Why would I mention this in a Wahoo Cookie Blog? Remember, we are all about “Fun & Love.” Over the past few weeks, I have had encounters with more than one of my friends who have expressed frustration with their work environments and being under appreciated. They work hard to bring new ideas and more efficient ways to their jobs, but without appreciation. I don’t just mean a quick “thank you” either. That is what you give folks who hold the door open for you.
Authentic appreciation goes to the root of a culture where people know they have value in whatever setting it is. This could take less than 60 seconds but make a day or the week for someone else.
Speaking of appreciation, Mother’s Day is right around the corner and what I wouldn’t be give to be able to tell my mother, Mary Lewis, thank you for helping me to become the independent, strong-willed woman I am today. (Mind you there were many others along the way, but the older I get the more I marvel at how she met the challenges life threw her.)
At Wahoo Cookies, we want you to relax, enjoy and appreciate time with your mom and family, so we are offering a special on Mother’s Day orders. To accommodate all of the orders and for us to enjoy our family, we have set a noon May 10 order deadline to receive cookies by Mother’s Day.
Take care of yourself in the week to come, and hopefully make time to show authentic appreciation to your family and friends.
Your Wahoo Cookie Baker
