Now the card I got was very encouraging. Its interesting how a simple card can encourage someone when they are loving on their child.
Here are some thoughts that any parent can do next time someone takes their child on a trip:
- Send an encouraging card thanking that person for investing in their child's life
- Send a box of candy
- Ask another person on the trip to give the person a card, or gift, while they are away (this option can save money or be useful if mail will not be available)
- Write a hand written note and slip it the person's backpack so they find it later in the week
- Give the person a Starbucks card as they head out of town (most weekends away with students are long and can become tiring)
Here is a copy of the letter that came with my box of candy. Very creative!
