My mom gave me the BEST birthday present this year. I turned twenty-five so she wrote a letter to 25 people who have been influential in my life. She asked them to send me a card and add a memory or guide me in my life.
Out went the letters and all of the 25 wrote cards back to me. She then placed them all in a box and wrapped it to give it to me on my birthday.
Opening this box and reading the cards was incredibly emotional for me and reminded me of the great people I have been lucky enough to share parts of my life with.
I want to thank all of you for taking the time to write to me! I decided to turn the cards and letters I received into a book that I can keep forever.
