Writing down a heartfelt thank you to those who have nurtured & taught you so much, is a creative thing to do, ... it takes a few minutes, and the rewards are endless! Its like a GIFT to self ... and who doesn't LOVE getting GIFTS! :)
In honouring Father's Day ... I would like to share what I wrote on my "Awe Thanks" page of my website ... I hope it inspires you to do the same!
To My Daddy: Thank you for being YoU and showing me your gentle side and for your admiration in all that I do (even though you think I'm a bit weird at times.) Its okay ... that's normal to feel that way! ;) Thank you for the long walks through the FoResT at Grandma's House. For teaching me about the apples in our Apple Orchard. For making me go out and tend to the ENORMOUS Vegetable Garden even when I didn't want to. For all your Creative Stories & Dreams and your Funny accents and pretending you knew other languages (I thought he was Italian throughout my childhood) lol ... for sharing your Imagination with me in ways you will never know that were beautifully perfect ... thanks Daddy ... I love you xox
Happy Father's Day Daddy!
Love you to the Moon & back with a sidestep detour around the Gardens!
Your loving daughter,
