"Thank you for all your TLC over the years.  I've grown so much because you shared your love and expertise with me."

"No amount of money or meaningful words could ever describe how much we appreciate you.  You are one of a kind and irreplaceable.  Anyone who is lucky enough to have you in their life is beyond blessed.  We could write a 10 page letter of all the things you have helped us overcome, but we won't do that.  We love you and hope to have you in our lives for many many years to come.  Thank you for being a mother, friend, and a person who speaks wisdom and truth into our lives."

"Happy almost Thanksgiving.  I just want to say how thankful I am for you.  You helped save me when I didn't think I could be saved."

I remember the hours we spent in therapy, and how you would listen to me and try to understand the pain I was going through.  I appreciate your humanity and dignity and ability to be with me in the moment.
