There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart — Jane Austen

Gratitude is the simplest, most powerful way to acknowledge another person’s value and humanity.It is something we all learn when we were kids : to say ‘’Thank you’’. In our everyday busy life we always forget or almost never tend to realize that these two simple words have a profound affect on our day by day outlook, our capacity to chart a route of success and most importantly to be happy.

I was recently given a project to work on by Amal Academy which was write a Thank you letter to someone who i think and know has supported me the most throughout my life. A very interesting and encouraging task because i always wanted to tell my sister that how important she is to me but i was not able to tell her. With this opportunity , I decided to make a thank you card and place a letter inside it and put it on her side table .

“Thank you” is an incredibly powerful pair of words, especially if the person you’re thanking really needs to hear them, or isn’t expecting them.

From me to you with love sister!

This letter is for my sister Javeria three years older than me but she never made me realize that she is older yet she acted as my best friend. She is always available for me whenever i need her help whether its about my studies, my work or my life.

Through my every struggling moment and every fear of not being good enough, there she stood, wiping away my tears and making sure I knew my worth. In today’s world everyone is busy they don’t get time to hear each other out; she has always acted differently . Thank you sister for always being my best friend. It might sounds like such a cliche, but there really is no friend like a sister. I can tell her literally anything.I can share with her my deepest, darkest insecurities that I wouldn’t dream of telling anyone else or i can tell her about my silly everyday stories. We have funny conversations as well as constructive. She is first person i go to whenever i need feedback or help in decision making.

She has always show me gratitude. I am grateful to have her as she helped me to improves my outlook on life and myself. I am grateful as she made me to take on new challenges and to be more optimistic about my goals. Her support does not only stem me to celebrate successes but it also helped me to be grateful for previous challenges and mining them for insights on what to repeat or what to change.

I am grateful and thank you to her today and will tomorrow for being my support center . I will always keep on looking out to her and will not hesitate to thank her at every step.

“I can no other answer make but thanks, and thanks, and ever thanks.” — William Shakespeare

Now i am waiting for her to read this letter at the same time i feel little awkward and hesitant .
