A Letter To My Aunt

Dear Aunt Dianne,

There is simply not enough time in a day or enough words in the dictionary to describe how thankful I am for you. You have stated several times that you not only love me because I am your brothers babygirl, but also because of who I am. We have always had a close relationship, and now that the day of my departure for college is now closer then ever I have truly realized how blessed I am to have you in my life. There is a ton of things that I could spend my time thanking you on, but I rather state the few that have stood out the most over the years.

Thank you for always supporting me in everything that I have done academically and spiritually. Though there have been many nights where I have cried about a particular grade or the amount of homework you have always greeted me with a smile stating “it will all pay off in the end.” Every morning, as my father’s tradition, you never fail to tell me to “have a great day at school and learn something new.” Whether you know it or not just hearing that makes my mornings superior. Thank you for being there for me when I had a broken heart, and helping me express my feelings about whatever may have been bothering me. Thank you for always trying to make special memories with me no matter how much I hated learning how to cook. I will remember for the rest of my life. Lastly, thank you for being my best friend. I have never felt that there was anything too little or too big to talk about with you. You always give me your honest and open opinion about any advice I need, and I thank you for that.

I love you more then you will ever know,

Pony Whoop
