Baie Dankie


I learned to say "thank you" in Afrikaans this week. This came as part of my work project, where I'm preparing people all over the globe for a conference. Learning this has been one of the highlights of my week! I can now say thank you in five languages. Next up to learn: Japanese and Chinese.

Expressing gratitude is spiritual practice I am cultivating. I think it makes me a kinder, happier person.

Happy weekend!

I love your focus on gratitude (but then you often inspire me!), and your teacup artwork is just great! So "Baie Dankie"!

Gratitude is a very good thing and one we all must remember. I loved your list - taxes done. Oh how I wish I was done with taxes for this year.

Thanks for you kind comment on my blog, One Love. That was a difficult one for me to write.

Hey Steph, thank you is pronounced "shi-shiya" in Mandarin (a Chinese dialect).
