The perfect Mother/Father day gift and it's free
May 7, 2017 1:54pm CST
My dad kept this gift until his death and enjoyed it every day. He said it was the best gift he'd ever gotten in his whole life. Write or type memories, funny incidents, anything that you enjoyed about your mom or dad--traits you admire, things they did for you, things you did together, anything that reflects your love for them and how they made your life wonderful. Cut them into individual papers and fold them up. Put them in a jar, box, or anything your parent can reach into and get one to read every day. Ideally, you'll make 365 pieces of paper, one for each day of the year. More is great, less is fine. The idea is that every day your mom/dad can reach in and read how they changed your life, how they made you feel loved. This will be the absolute best gift you will ever give your mom or dad. And if your mom or dad is no longer here, start writing those memories so you can pass them to your own children and give them the gift of knowing their grandparents. I'm so glad I did this for my dad! My stepmother said he was still reading those slips of paper a few days before he died. There is no greater gift than your love, especially to those who taught you what real love is.

No, I'm just cheap! It was only after I saw the effect it had on Dad that I thought to encourage others to do it. It's a nice thing to do for anyone that you love. I'll bet teachers would like to have something like that at the end of the year from their class(es).

@dragon54u Yeah you are right but I need a perfect time to show my gratitude and love, I know what they are expecting from me and fulfilling that will explain everything to them, So its only the time I am waiting right now and only that can do magic for them.
