Усталость скрутила его, ноги горели, а мышцы бедер все еще ныли от непривычного усилия. Соблазн плюнуть на путешествие к крепости до следующего раза был слишком велик. Но этого следующего раза могло и не. Под призрачным светом бледнеющих звезд -- немало их погасло с тех пор, как отгремела битва при Шалмирейне -- Олвин боролся с собой и наконец принял решение.
Looking for a memorable, genuine way to thank someone?
If your goal is simply to bring a touch of warmth and humanity into your message, a simple “thank you” may suffice, but if you really want to express your thanks, “thank you” probably won’t feel like enough.
“Thank you very much” has been a long-time go-to for emphasizing thanks, but with its formal tone it won’t always be the best choice for conveying feelings in a personal way.
“Thank you so much” has become a popular phrase for email sign-offs and to express gratitude—it’s colloquial, and feels personal and sincere—but all that (over)use may be lessening its impact.
While your go-to may always be “thank you so much” or “thank you very much,” if you’re looking to branch out and explore other meaningful ways of saying “thank you” in your writing, we have some suggestions to get you started.
Who wouldn’t love the one-two punch of gratitude and praise? Show your appreciation by recounting the awesome thing they did—the more customized, the better! “Thank you for all your… incredible work on our project…. invaluable insights on my manuscript… kind words during this difficult time…”
Share the impact they’ve made. “Thanks again… your help made a huge difference… you’re the main reason we were able to launch on time… you’re a lifesaver…”
A little praise can go a long way. “Thank you, you’re… a gem… a real peach… a rock star… a genius… seriously incredible… the bee’s knees… the best…
What are you thankful for about this person? “I’m so thankful for… your amazing sense of humor, even when things are hard… the way you jumped in and started contributing right away… everything you’ve done for this monster-size project…
Use this fun phrase with folks you have a close relationship with (probably not your boss). Other variations include “Thanks a ton” and “Thanks a bunch.”
What do you appreciate? Customize this phrase for your wonderful recipient. “I truly appreciate… all your time spent on this… your energy and passion for the launch… your invaluable guidance on my thesis…”
Sometimes a message that says “I see you” is all that’s needed.
Did you just receive a huge favor? Show how grateful you are.
Navigating a formal situation? A formal phrase may be in order.
What are you grateful for? “Grateful for… your help… your input… your assistance… your undying loyalty… your genius grammar skills”
Whether you received a physical gift, or the gift of words, let them know how they made a difference.
Let them know you see and appreciate their effort.
Let them know how valuable they are. “So glad… you’re partnering with us… we’re friends… I have you in my life…”
“Thank you so much” has become a popular phrase for email Whether you received a physical gift, or the gift of words, let them know how.

Thanking your boss for a gift is a thoughtful and polite way to show your gratitude.
There are many occasions when a boss may give you a gift such as for your birthday, new baby, wedding, Christmas or another holiday, welcoming you to the team, work anniversary, or to recognize you in some way, etc.
Note: not all bosses are gift givers so don't feel bad if you came across this post and your boss has never given you a gift.
I have not received any gifts recently from a boss. My current boss gave me a kitty teapot since I like cats when I joined his team (There is a picture of it in the examples below). It resides on my desk at the office. Technically, it was a re-gift as he had given it to another co-worker who didn't want it anymore. A prior boss would bring back Mi-Cho-Ko candies when he traveled to Paris.
In some of the examples below, I used gifts that my friends have received from their bosses for inspiration. But first, here are some tips:
Tip #1: To make your note better be specific in your note. By this I mean, in the note say what you are thanking the boss for.
Tip #2: If the gift was personalized, such as a mug, pen, stationery, etc. be sure to mention the personalization.
Tip #3: Your note can include a compliment of your boss, if you want to, and don’t go over the top. And don’t say it if you don’t mean it. So don’t say “you're a great boss” if you don’t mean it. No lying to impress.
Tip #4: The tone of the note can be funny if your boss appreciates the humor.
Tip #5: Now, for money, it will depend on why the boss gave it too. Usually, when thanking the money giver, I recommend sharing what you did or plan to do with to do with the money. But that will depend on the relationship you have with your boss. If your boss is also a friend, you may want to share. But if not or you don't want to, it's okay not to share the details of how the cash was used with the boss. Please read the How to write a thank you note for money for examples of thanking your boss for cash without saying what you did with it.
Your boss is a person like you but with a different job title. Thank him or her just like anyone else. Hopefully, your boss is not an intimidating person.

You've received such a great present, you're speechless. And that's not good because you need to write a thank you note! Here: Copy one of the samples below.
Wow! Thank you again so much for the appetizer plates! What a treat. The dishes are beautiful, especially with each plate having a different design. You certainly read my mind. The box they're nestled in will be on display...so the plates are one gift and the box is another.
That was so very thoughtful of you to think of it and organize it with your brother so it could be sent to me for Mother's Day. I think of Paris when I look at the plates and it reminds me of when daddy and I were there enjoying their delicious cheeses and pastries.
Can't wait to use them. Merci!
I wanted to write you a little note to thank you again for the lovely plant you gave to me. It was so incredibly generous of you to give a plant to me for my efforts in organizing the luncheon, especially considering you didn't even get to attend! It really was a great way to get to know the other women on our block and I'm so glad you and your family are a part of our neighborhood. I'm sure there are many more fun times ahead.
Thank you so much for the lovely book! I have it out on our coffee table and everyone stops to browse through it. It's fascinating, and would you believe the cover design even matches our decor? It's perfect in every way.
Thank you again for thinking of me!
Besides having my usual great time at your house, I was introduced to a product I never heard of -- a slide belt! What a cool, attractive and different item. Thank you all for a turning a "lesser" birthday into a memorable one with a present I didn't know I wanted until I got it!
Lots of love to you all,
Dear Mrs. Carba,
You were so thoughtful to get Peter a gift while he's recuperating. He loves that Spiderman spy kit more than you can believe! His best friend was at our house the day the package arrived and they played spies all afternoon. He tries to catch me sneaking into his room with the motion detector and uses the telescope to search for incoming villains. It's been a very fun gift that has made having mono much more bearable.
Thanks so much!
Dear Farrah and John,
We are loving the new towels you bought for us! They're so soft and cozy. I didn't even realize how threadbare our towels were until these arrived. I am looking forward to some luxurious baths once the kids return to school! Thank you!
How in the world did you know I liked chocolate? Ok I guess it's not a big secret, but you managed to get me my absolute favorite kind, and wrapped in a bow so pretty I hated to untie it (but I did). I'm trying to pace myself but it's going quickly!
Thank you for thinking of me! You could not have picked out anything more perfect!
The flowers are gorgeous! I've never gotten flowers at the office before and it was quite a treat! I felt like a queen. Thank you so much for sending them, and for choosing such a beautiful bouquet. You really made my day!
