Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner...the very smart and talented Rachel from No 17 Cherry Tree Lane is hosting a challenge called Be Thankful On Paper.
I love the concept!
Every Wednesday in the month of November...write (on paper...yes...a good old fashion letter...mailed and everything..with a stamp) a letter to someone to tell them that YOU are thankful for THEM!
It will make you smile...it will make them smile...it is just an all around good challenge!! I encourage you to come and play along!
Rachel has a linky set up on her blog ...so feel free to join in anytime...
This week...the first letter i wanted to write was to my husband.
I didn't mail it...but I drove over to his work and slipped it in his truck so when he went on his lunch break ...he was suprised by it!
In the letter I told him how my life would not be the same if he weren't in it. It would be majorly different. Everything we have we worked together to get..and I am very proud of where we live...everything we have and who we are!
He was suprised by it..and called me to tell me that it was one of the best things I had given him (besides our daughter).
Sometimes it doesn't take hundreds of dollars to give special gift....
a good old written letter does wonders for one's soul!
I do not use correct grammar..sorry...I use a tremendous amount of (...) dots and I absolutely hate to captilize my (I's)...it seems so much faster to keep them lowercase...so I will apologize right now to all you grammar fanatics and English teachers..Here is a little about me...I am a mommy to a 2 year old, a wife, daughter, sister, Penecostal, preschool teacher..and I hope you enjoy reading about my journey to somehow stay Nikki.
