we have a lot of friends beside us.. and there are those who are really close to us, our best friends.. they are those amidst our weaknesses, they are always there.. and so in turn, how do you say thank you to them?.. are you sensitive to say it?.. or are just not that type that is not quite in showing your emotions?.. me, i always do.. i would hug them and really say thank you.. and also, i would give a gift.. and how about you?

well, i say it to them up front, say the words so that they can hear the sincerity in what i am saying. i usually say thank you with a warm hug, that'e very effective! and whenever they have problems too, no matter how small or big, i am there for them as well, to show that i am grateful and thankful when they were at my side when i needed them.. and it's a really happy feeling!

I do have a very good friend who I am close to. He is there for me when I need him and stands by me through weaknesses, through the good and the bad. He also accepts me the way that I am. I can trust that I will see him at the end of the day. He is called my husband. I do try to show him that I care by taking care of him. I feel that it is a good wife to care for her husband and friend.

i once gave a friend a gift and it was returned because he was full of self-respect now i still give gifts but am more careful because i don't need them to misunderstand me and i generally use both verbal and sentimental gifts to say "thanks you"

I'm not sure what others might say about me, but I always try to show my appreciation, especially to my friends. I think in some cases a simple thank you isn't enough. I try to something special for a friend who deserves more than a thank you. Maybe I will cook a nice meal or buy a small gift or flowers for my friend. Have a nice night.

I say it wholeheartedly, even in text messages and even in small favors given to us, its something thats part of my lifestyle. Its like being thankful always for all the blessings that we recieve everyday and its always great to have a thankful heart than a complaining heart. Have a nice day and take care!
