Gratitude Letter - Prompt #7

Write a letter of gratitude to a friend or family member. Make it a point to tell that person how they make/made a difference in your life.

Dear Debbie (my favorite sister),

As my first letter to someone on my Celebrate Gratituesday blog I couldn't imagine a person who seemed more appropriate.  You are so much more than a sister to me, you are a friend.  Even though there is 10 years that separate us in age we still managed to maintain a close relationship.  Over the years distance has kept us from spending as much time together as would be nice.  I am grateful for Facebook because it allows us the chance to keep in touch on almost a daily basis.  One of the ways you have impacted my life is by demonstrating that even when life gets tough you have to persevere.  It really took losing Mom and Dad to really make us realize how precious family is and how important it is to make sure we know that we love each other.  I always have and I always will.  Thanks for being a wonderful big sister!

Your favorite sister,


  1. This is a great idea. I was just thinking the other day that I need to write a letter to my parents. Thanks for the great reminder. It sounds like you and your sister have a great relationship this is awesome.

  2. Hi Lisa! You know how fond I am of letter writing from my Write A Letter Wednesday blog, so this Gratituesday prompt is right up my alley! :-) Here's a link to a letter I wrote recently to a very dear blogging friend of mine who inspires me...

  6. What a treasure to appreciate your sibling. I only have one brother who is 14 years younger and I do appreciate him but i didn't know him really, because he was only 4 when I left home. Perhaps a few years apart make you even closer, like you and your sister.

  7. This is such a sweet letter, thanks for sharing:)

  10. A wonderful idea, thanks for the suggestion. We should never take our loved ones for granted!
