When you call, share something about your friend that you are grateful for and why. Not only will you be brightening their day; you will also be releasing happy feel-good endorphins for yourself, too. A woman talking on her cell phone, perhaps making a call from her apartment.

We are all about writing thank-you cards — what better thing to do on December 26th, which happens to be National Thank You Card Day.

Write one up this month in your apartment here in Kansas City, MO before the month is over.
