Sometimes we get along with them and sometimes we think they are cramping our style. There is no love like a parent loves their child. No matter what you do your parents love you.
I know I am personally close to my parents and value their opinions very much so. My parents created wonderful memories for my sisters and I. They have given us everything they could. They bought us the toys and clothes we begged them to have because everyone else has those toys and clothes. They drove us to all of our extra-curricular activities. They took us to church on Sundays. They helped us work on our homework and projects. They helped us to get through college. My parents didn't kick us out of the house after graduating from high school or college. They sacrificed so much for us.
When I came up with the crazy idea to start my own business, my parents were there to help me pursue my dream. They are still there for me when I have a bad day at work and when I feel like I am failing in so many ways. I don't know about you, but I know I got pretty lucky as far as parents go. I hope that I can be wonderful parents like they were with me and my sisters.

So in honor of National Letter Writing Month, let's take a break from texting our parents (or ignoring their texts) and write a letter to one (or both) of them. If your parents are not alive, you can chose to write to someone that is like a parent to you.
- Write the letter to one of your parents (or someone that is like a parent to you).
- You can use any card you like that fits the receiver of the card's personality. If you are looking for some greeting cards, you can visit my shop here.
- Post a picture of the card you are about to send on Instagram AND use #cards2lovedones in the caption.
- You will be placed in a drawing for a chance to win a $25 Starbucks gift card. The winner will be announced at the end of the month.
Ideas for What to Write
- How much you miss them and love them
- How grateful you are for what they have and had done for you
- A fond memory that you have
- What you are up to:
- When you hope/know you will see them again
- Maybe even add a photo of the two of you together or a photo with both you and your parents
