The Bible says, that two are better than one because the return of their work is greater.

One retiring car dealer from Michigan clearly understands that principal. In April, the owner of the Howard Cooper Import Center in Ann Arbor sold his dealership. Recently, he gathered his employees together to give them a $1,000 bonus for every year they had worked for him.

Cooper received a standing ovation as he passed out checks ranging from $1,000 to $46,000. When this business owner was asked why he did it, he replied, “”I wanted to thank my employees and that was a way I could do it…I hope it makes a difference in their lives like they have made in mine.” He truly understood that we are at our best when we work side by side with others, making a difference in our homes, our work-places, our communities and our world.

Think about those around you, and let them know how much you appreciate their encouragement, friendship, and the help they have given you over the years.

Have a Blessed Day!
