  9. The necessary people are all around us! We come in contact with them all day and most times never think twice about them and what our life would be without them. Since reading Listen, Love, Repeat, I look at them in a different light. I try to say thank you more often and I love that you picked this as one of your 12 Days of Christmas Kindness. I was feeling poor yesterday so I didn’t get a chance to give mine out, but I will make it up!

  10. The necessary people in my life are the ones who help my husband and I on Tuesday evenings. They help by serving food to 40 people, teach, clean up, play outside with the kids and just be there to help care for the people in the small, poor neighborhood by our mission church. We couldn’t do the ministry without them. So next week we’re having a small get together at our house.

  11. LOVE this idea! Many times I’ve thought about someone who went out of their way to help. This is a great way to gift back.

  12. Wonderful idea! Don’t always take the time to Thank those people!!! Thanks for making us think about it.
