Expressing Gratitude

Our daughter just finished her first year of college.  My husband found a letter on his desk from her.  Here's what she said:

Dear Dad: 

There isn't enough I could say that would be enough in thanking you for putting me through my first year of college.  I am so lucky to be able to attend and prepare for my future at an institution debt-free and beautiful.  I am grateful to you for making it a reality.  

I've learned three things about myself this first year at college:

1.  I never realized until now that you and mom have raised me to be incredibly independent.  I've learned that I can handle any situation that comes my way on my own with a strong faith and a steady heart.

2.  I am mature.  I am not like most kids my age.  I can create my own fun without needing to bend the rules, and I am able to handle myself in the "real world" without being overwhelmed.

3.  I am different.  As you always say Dad, "different is not bad at all."  I have much to offer that most people do not

This letter only begins to express my gratitude for all that you do for me and Mom, but I hope you know how much you are loved and appreciated.

My husband was a big pile of tears after reading this.  He's worked very hard and has been a great steward of our money.  He is a prize and I'M lucky to have him!



Remember, allof you can send me "letters" too - by email!  Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family - it's free - and tell us of your experiences.
