I don’t know how it was in your home growing up, but in mine if someone did something for you, whether gift, kindness, or courtesy, we were taught to say thanks. The times I probably forgot to do this conveniently slip my mind. For one thing, I’m married to an avid thank you note writer. Having gone through our October birthdays, there were so many gift cards and monetary remembrances, there were many thank you cards to write. We serve on the most generous district in the entire denomination! Our Southern Florida people are radically generous. We cannot adequately express thanksgiving to all of you, but we try.
Imagine a country that sets aside an entire day as a holiday to be thankful. We know that “Ingratitude,” in the words of Miles Seaborn, “is as widespread as the human race and is as old as mankind.” In a sermon titled, “Make Thanksgiving Meaningful,” he reminds us that “It should be a priority that we express our gratitude to God for all that He has given us.”
2 Corinthians 9:10-13 NLT says,  For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.  Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God.  So two good things will result from this ministry of giving-the needs of the believers in Jerusalem will be met, and they will joyfully express their thanks to God.  As a result of your ministry, they will give glory to God. For your generosity to them and to all believers will prove that you are obedient to the Good News of Christ.”
Radical generosity starts with a God who provides. We are thankful when we are “fully conscious that we have been blessed.” From that one little seed planted, comes a fourfold head of grain. Enrichment, increase, generosity, praise to God.
We have at least one notable instance in Scripture where nine lepers forgot to say thanks. In Luke 17:11-19, Jesus healed ten lepers, but only one came back to thank The Lord for being healed. This forces me to ask who I want to be like? The nine who received a Lord’s grace and healing but forgot to say thanks? Or the one who could never get over what Jesus had done for him? May we keep on being grateful for all of the blessings that come from Christ and thank Him often, but especially on Thanksgiving Day.

but it is necessary to be very attentive what to rumple who it and whether there can be this person a swindler. after all and such happens. you don’t need which counterfeit production too much. simply it costs strongly cheaper.
