National Write A Letter of Appreciation Week: 1-7
In honor of National Write A Letter of Appreciation Week, I’d like to challenge each of you to write a letter to someone you who has made an impact on your life and let them know! If you do it on a public forum, feel free to link to it in the comments below, and spread the inspiration to show our appreciation for others. 🙂 I’m sharing mine below, to someone I don’t normally express my gratitude to in so many words…
I don’t always say it, but I appreciate you.
I carry with me daily as a parent myself now the lesson you taught to us growing up that providing for your children is a top priority, working hard to make sure we never went without anything we needed. I admire the example of generosity to others that you have set for me, even though I think you are absolutely bonkers for being so giving to some people I can see so clearly don’t deserve your help. I appreciate you helping Mom teach me how to be a good steward of the things God gives me, and how to save for a rainy day. I am grateful that you gave me the opportunity to raise so many different kinds of animals growing up, because those are some of my best memories from childhood (dressing up goats, rolling around hedgehogs, hanging out on Jack’s back, and on). I appreciate the strong morals you and Mom taught me, and the foundation that has given me as I make my own decisions in life. I’m glad to know that if I really, truly need you for anything, you’ll be there for me.
There are many things I appreciate about you, but I don’t want it to ramble on or make it all go to your head. We all know that thing is already swollen up the size of an elephant on steroids already, right? 😉 (Yep, I’m also grateful for the gift of sarcasm you endowed on me, whether you are glad for that one or not…HA! 🙂 )
Love You Oodles & Truckloads,
Your Favorite Daughter *Shhh!!! Don’t tell them I’m your only one.
Alright, y’all, is there anyone who would you like to show your appreciation for? Give them a shout out below! 🙂

Sounds like you have a great dad! I also have one of them too! We really learn to appreciate them more when we become a parents ourselves. What a great letter of appreciation you wrote to him.

He is a good person, and that’s something a lot of people can’t say about their dads. Thanks!
