Words of Appreciation - Down to the Roots!
Appreciation. Praise. Gratitude. Quick, give me a definition.
It actually left me kind of stuck for words!
It helps not only to get the definition, but to also find the etymology - the meaning of the root words, similar words, and their meanings from other languages.
This website is about gratitude, so I did quite a bit of word study and research over several months, so you don't have to. That's because I know for most people, word studies are very boring - including me.
But, honestly, I was quite surprised at the results - things I never knew, that are helping me a lot when I'm writing thank you cards and messages.
So believe me, I'm happy to share this with you.
I hope these pages help you shine when you thank your stars!
