giving thanks

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

I am starting this new thing, where I am going to write a thank you note to someone important to me everyday up until Thanksgiving (Maybe Christmas, haven't decided yet). I just want to show the people in my life how thankful I am and how much I love them. I encourage you to do the same.

These thank you notes can be just about anything: a little sticky note, a thank you card, a sweet text, or a social media post. I wanted to do something special for two very special people in my life, my parents. These two are freaking amazing and wonderful, I don't know how I got so lucky to have them.

Dear Mom and Dad,

Oh my gosh I love you both so much and I am so thankful for you both. I am so grateful for the way that you raised me, for showing me unconditional love no matter what. I am so glad that you raised me to know Jesus and to know that he loves me more than both of you combined. You both raised me to be independent and to do everything for myself. You raised me to be compassionate and caring for others. You raised me to know how I should be treated and to never settle for anything less. I appreciate you, mom for cooking with me and listening to me complain about everything (blame dad that I inherited the complainer gene). I appreciate you, dad for watching Blue Bloods with me and for telling me to get a cough drop ever single time I cough. Mom and Dad, I am so grateful for all that you do. I love you both more! (Let me win okay! Don't ya'll dare say it's not possible because I will drive home and yell at you both! Let me win something okay!)

love, your freaking amazing and wonderful daughter

See how easy that is? It's so simple to say thank you and show how much you love a person or people. Try it out!

xoxo, Aubrey
