A Thank-You Note to Grandma

Those who make us happy are always thankful to us for being so; their gratitude is the reward of their benefits.

Madam Swetchine

Dearest Grandma,

I have always loved you, Grandma, for your sweet and loving ways.

You always had the knack of brightening ordinary days.

You are a sincere and honest woman, beautiful, kind and true.

Since I was a little girl I have always admired you.

You have given me many special gifts, but the most valuable that I recall,

Is a gift that I have treasured since I was very small.

This wonderful, lovely present was not a pearl or piece of gold.

It was not a diamond or precious gem, nor could it be bought or sold.

It was not a lucky charm that could be tucked inside my pocket.

It was not a silver necklace or an expensive golden locket. It did not have a price tag. Its worth could not be measured.

Throughout my life, it is something that I have always treasured.

This gift is unique, one of a kind, its beauty beyond compare.

It fills my life with hopes and dreams and takes away my fears.

It was given to you quite long ago, sent by the Lord above.

He entrusted you to care for it and nurture it with love.

I thank you for my favorite gift worth more than any other.

I received it on the day that I was born, my beautiful, precious mother.
