Thank You, Mom and Dad

Sarah Klauda & Sheldon King

Thank you so much for teaching me how to live simply. You helped me discover what I truly need and taught me to forego the rest. Even on a modest salary, I can give to those who are less fortunate; and I find happiness in being able to make a difference. In such a money-driven society, I am blessed to be content with what I have and have no desire to run after the latest and greatest new thing.

stk150071rkeI thank you too for teaching me about love and relationships. I don’t think my current relationship would have lasted if I didn’t know how to talk to my significant other in a calm voice. We don’t judge or patronize each other. We talk respectfully over a cup of tea. You taught me that I have to respect myself before he can respect me and that if he doesn’t, then he can take a hike. I am better than that.

In short, you have taught me how to live; and I’m extremely grateful.

Sincerely, Your Daughter

Thank You note2 TSP 167171910TAKE TIME TO SAY THANK YOU: It costs approximately $250,000 to raise a child to the age of 18. Naturally, this does not include the gifts of time and love that your parents shower upon you. Saying thank you is not only a great way to express your love and gratitude, but it also strengthens your relationship with your parents. Why not write them a thank you note today?
