Dear Michelle,

Thank you for a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. The food was superb; I’m glad you served all the traditional dishes our family loves.

I was really impressed with the way the boys pitched in and helped. It was nice to see the Erik, Ben & Stefan trio fixing the stuffed mushrooms. All the kids were helpers. Your table was lovely and gave us good reason to dress up for dinner. It reminds us that this is a holiday to show our gratitude to God for the many ways he has blessed us.

We were entertained by the boys improvised slide down the stairs. I’m sure this type of entertainment will be talked about with fondness in their own family gatherings in the years to come.

Thanks for making a special effort to come to the dessert gathering at our house later. I know you were all tired, but I’m glad that you opted to come. We don’t have too many Thanksgivings left when we will all be able to gather before Ben’s mission.

Thank you again. I know it was a lot of work.

Love, Mom

    I’ve been thinking about this for a few days now. I think I need to write more thank you notes.

    Thank you for sharing.
