Dire merci et bien plus que ça
by Ralph Mosgrove
About the book
A simple response of “Thank You’ seems inadequate when you are on the receiving end of an act of kindness. My wife, Elsie disabled from a fall at the age of 75, received such attention as she approached a door or was in need of help in some manner. We often asked what more could be said to make the thank you more meaningful. After her death in 2015, I put some of our thoughts together and present them in this book. It offers ideas and anecdotes on ways to go beyond the ordinary response.
Remembering the effects of a ripple in the water, does the same with our words, which have the power of life or death. Just like our echo, what we say and how we act comes back to us in like form. Passing on the act of kindness, generates good will and gives benefits of encouragement, confidence and joy, knowing you have helped someone as you have been helped. Reading about our journey will answer the question, is saying thank you enough?
