I give thanks everyday I wake up; life is a gift. If you have good things in your life then you are blessed even more. No matter what my state is when I see  an opportunity to help others I do it & I don't expect anything in return.

Good question to ponder this morning!  Most would agree that they give and not expect a thanks in return.  Giving should be the return, but a thanks is definitely icing on the cake.

Without giving, there is not as much to say thank you for.

So I think it is giving & thanks.
