Just look at this gorgeous bunch of flowers Kendall arrived home with the other afternoon. Aren't they just beautiful? So totally unexpected and "out of the blue" - a lovely surprise.
It was her note in the little card however that really tipped me over the edge. I only managed to read the first line before dissolving into a blubbering mess. (I seriously need to get a better grip on my emotions!)
Dear Mum & Dad
I would just like to thank you both for supporting me throughout my teaching degree.
I know I have not always been easy to be around and that both of you have
felt the stress.
The truth is, I simply could not have made it without you!
Thank you for the words of encouragement; the "pocket" money;
fixing my car; buying me food/clothes etc.
Thank you for really being outstanding parents and setting me up for my future -
I will be forever grateful.
I know I could never pay you back for you have done for me - so hopefully this is a start.
