Sometimes I wonder why on earth I do it, sometimes I need to remind myself:
"Hi, I got a letter today telling me that I'd been nominated to receive the midland region chief commissioner award. I feel so honoured and chuffed that someone thought of me. I feel so happy right now. I feel really appreciated. I'm keeping it quiet but I just wanted to let U know as you've been there to support me in guiding along the way. Love C xxx"
"I didn't realise it had been so long! All of it was good though. You have been a really good leader. thankyou. x"
"Hi Sarah,I just wanted to say a quick thank you because I really had a fantastic weekend. I've thoroughly enjoyed myself and a fab end to my time at rangers. See you monday:)"
"Hopefully I'll see you again soon. Thank you, you're amazing x"
"....but more than anything I know you'll defend me if all goes wrong"

Doing something, even though it seemed like not enough at the time, can make such a difference to the person that received it. Don't ever forget that.
