Gratitude Story from Bolivia

If you wanted to send a thank-you note to someone in your life, who would it be, and what is one of your best memories of that person? "I would like to send thanks to my daughter, who now lives in Chile, because she always helps me and is there for me. A good memory I have with her is when she was a little girl. On my birthday she gave me shoes. She showed me her love that way. This was an amazing gift because we had money problems at the time. The morning of my birthday, I had no idea she and her father were planning to give me a present. Since I like surprises, she decided to “hide” from me while laughing all around the house. It was then time for her to go to school. I spent the morning talking to friends and waiting for the family to arrive home. My daughter came home with a present in her hands. I couldn’t figure out what a little girl would get for me, but when I opened the wrap I saw the most beautiful shoes. They were a gift from my baby. Later, I found out my husband and daughter went shopping for a whole Saturday morning and that my daughter wanted to take all of the shoes home for me. After deciding for an hour, she finally picked those shoes. She said they were going to make me look like the prettiest mom in the world. During the rest of my birthday, I wore the shoes and told my daughter that I would wear them only on special occasions. Over the following months, she would supervise me while I dressed to make sure I wouldn’t wear those shoes unless it was a very special time. We would also pick what dresses would look the best with her present." (Bolivia).
