A Letter to Someone Special

“All a good letter has to do is make you feel special.” TI


This week your act of kindness is to write a letter to someone who has made a difference in your life.  This person could have taught you a valuable lesson in life, or simply makes you want to be a better person. Whoever this person is, I want you to write a letter explaining how they have made a difference in your life. Use the mock letter below as an example of how your letter should look. Pass in your rough copy to me before next Tuesday’s class! In your blog post, be sure to include who you wrote the letter to, and why! Have a great week, and keep smiling!

Dear Mom,

Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. You’ve always shown unconditional love towards me even when I don’t want it, or don’t deserve it. Having you as a mother is the greatest gift and biggest advantage anyone could have given me. You’ve sacrificed lots of things for me, and I’m writing this letter to show you how truly grateful I am. You taught me right from wrong, good from bad, and decent from indecent. It’s because of the values and confidence that you’ve instilled in me that makes me who I am today. Thank you for shaping me into a person I’m proud to be and letting me believe that I can be whoever I want to be. I’ve learned how to be a responsible, productive person from you, and I thank you with all of my heart.

One of the best things about you is how you make me do things I don’t usually want to do. You make me do my homework and do chores, and even though I don’t show it very often, I’m truly grateful. You pressure me by saying, “Do your homework, or no Xbox this weekend.”, or “Eat your food, or you can sit there all night.” At the time I didn’t like it, but as I reflect back on it now, I realize that it was all for my own good. You have high expectations of me, and now I have high expectations of myself. Sometimes high school can be overwhelming with all of the tests and homework, but you always try to lighten the load. I think it’s great how you pressure me to do good in school, but you’re always so nice about it.

Another great attribute about you is how you’re such a good listener. You always (most of the time) listen to my ideas completely without interrupting. You don’t scoff at my ideas, but try to add to them nicely. When I graduate high school I want to go to a great engineering school. You don’t tell me that I’m not smart enough, or that we don’t have enough money. You tell me to get good grades and scholarships. I can’t even express how thankful I am for that.

Thank you for everything, for all of the big and small things. They all have made a difference in my life, no matter how small. Thanks for being so understanding, so strict and for listening to all of my ideas, no matter how stupid. If there is an award for the best mother in the world, you would have earned it.


Your son Danny
