My daughter is doing a play-a-thon for her band at school, which included getting pledges.  Not wanting to bother people, I told her she could only call 3 people.  One of those 3 was her Aunt Connie.

When my sister mailed her a check for $10, she also included a note that read:

Thanks for keeping 
me a part of things that 
are happening in your life.  
Kick butt!!!  
Aunt Connie

I've read this letter several times and it still puts a smile on my face and tears in my eyes.  Thanks for caring about my daughter Connie.  And thanks for the example of "what perspective will you take" - and taking the time to talk to her.  It makes me so happy when she knows she's important!

My friend's story:

I needed to write my daughter's teacher a note, and I did it quickly since her bus was coming.  After she was gone I realized, I wrote that note to the teacher in text format!
